    This was discussed below in another thread here. I do not believe it was a real matching sniper. I don't like the numbers on the mount. Had it been real, I don't $11,000 is too much. But for this rifle it was, because it is fake.

    Matt and several collectors including myself discussed the authenticity of this rifle. In the end we believe the base rifle is fine, the mount itself is fine, however the there are a couple reasons why the serial number should be treated with suspicion.

    And I also agree that 11k for an authentic k43 sniper is within reason.

    Have authentic matching sniper rifles gone down in value?

    I paid 15k for a matching K43 almost 10 years ago.

    No, I bought it from a fellow collector - he had posted pics of it and his other K43 sniper on another forum.

    He hasn't been posting lately, but I think he was going into full auto weapons.

    I'd say the price of everything firearm related has gone down in value, even the good stuff. But, it will return.
