Gerat 03 would be cool. I love experimental German rifles, not sure though, how mature the Gerat 03 design was when they stopped working on it. I don't think the market will yield more than $3K for an exotic replica like that. Gerat 06H, on the other hand, could be more promising and the market price could be about what you sell a BD44 for, although I doubt it will be able to command PTR44-level prices.

Thank you for responding, the 06 we are working on. I have gotten a lot of interest in the G43, that's why I am asking on it. The 3 rifles will cost about the same to produce, but I wonder if the marked needs them.

There was a modern produced G/K43 made in Germany by SSD for a few years. They were the same company that made MP38's, MK42b's, MP44's and FG42's. However, the cost was about the same as an original WWII produced rifle. I do not know if any were sold outside of Germany/Europe.

I would not be surprised if there were also reliability issues, as most of their other firearms were know for poor function. The company also had many financial issues and I think they sold rifles under 2-3x different names before becoming defunct. Nevertheless they did make some very good looking copies of some hard to find firearms.
