Local guy has this K43 that his uncle bought as a hunting rifle 50+ years ago and has now found it’s way to him. I have wanted to find a “reasonable” k43 at some point for a shooter b/c they are so classic, but I don’t know if this is the one, hoping for some opinions.
Obviously the stock has the new “inlays”and the forearm is cracked and chipped. Front barrel band had the sling slot cut out for who knows why, and it obviously doesn’t have a shooters kit in it. To source some repo parts to have it look “original” and a shooters kit I’m guesstimating $500 after doing some quick research. Guy is asking $1000, financially speaking does anyone think this makes sense? Right now I’m thinking I’m on the pass side of the fence.
