Authentic Mauser Red 9 value
« on: June 23, 2017, 04:50:08 AM »
Hello,


I'm new and I'm not a gun collector or have anything in common with guns. There is a chance that my grandfather has authentic pistol from Germany - Mauser Red 9 (with bullets from that time). Which looks something similar to this gun: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/30xNX4Z38kg/maxresdefault.jpg


Red 9 seems to be whittled with knife and isn't as symmetric as in this photo. I'm 100% sure it is authentic and is the same as was ~50 years ago.


Theoretical question: what might be the value of this gun in Europe/USA?


Thank you very much for answers.

A realistic value in the US is $1500-3000. A good deal of value is based on condition and originality. If there is a wood holster/stock  add $, if it has a matching serial number add $, if it has a leather harness add $, tool etc....
The value could be less than $1500 if there are issues, MM parts, signs of rust, loss of finish, re-finish, etc......

I cannot advise you on what the European value would be.
