What is a good used barrel No 1 Mk III with rear and front site bases worth?

I was offered one but at $65.00 it is a little rich for me, I think.

I'd say $65 is about right for a good useable barrel with both sights.

Thanks Canuck!

Any indications on the condition of the bores Paddy? As a comparison, well maybe not a fair comparison but a couple years ago I bought 3 #4 barrels with front sights. The bores were excellent, shiny with deep 2 grooves for $75 each plus shipping from a Canadian address. 2 of them are Longbranch's and one is a Maltby.

It had a nice bore when I check by just holding it up to the inside store light.

I will bring a bore light when I go back.

Wow!

I take it you can not import barrels?

Getting them in is ok with a bit of paperwork, getting them out from there is a big no.
 While there are a fair few around, the buggers that own them know how to milk the best price.
 It's almost cheaper to have a new one made.......except it's not quite the same.

I guess it comes down to the old rule of supply and demand.

I just heard a rumor that Lithgow is making a run of No1 barrels.Lamp
They may even be making some new No1 rifles, if the information is right.

That would be cool for our Mates from downunda but I do not know if we will see any finished product on this side of the pond.

I wish we would.

I'll bet not. They're probably defined as assault weapon evile death-killer thingies.

India still manufactures sporting rifles based on the SMLE action, but in an odd ball 8mm chambering.
Be nice if they produced a copy of the old BSA sporting rifles for export.

I did buy the barrel, for $35 OTD.

I also heard the rumour about the barrels but haven't heard anything concrete.
Don't know anything about no1's, I wouldn't think they would make them again but they are going to manufacture a range of sporting rifles, both rim fire and centre fire.

$35 OTD is a steal, you should be happy with that price, I would!!! I have 3 extra excellent bore #4 barrels, all 2 groove with perfect crowns and firing chambers, one LB and the other 2 Maltby. I paid $75 each from Joe Salter a couple years back. I know it is a different model barrel, but just thought I would add that as a reference.
