I have two rifles ( Type 24 Zhongzheng rifle ) pictures attached and an Enfield. Anyone have a clue what it would sell for on GunBroker ? I would appreciate it. Thanks

Enfield Rifle .303 UK MK III. w/Bayonet. A metal band attached to the trigger shows the makers mark and and reads 'G.R. 1917 SHT LE III. It's bayonet and scabbard have identical makers marks.

Type 24 Zhongzheng rifle has a serial number of O 5596, the owner carved his initials ( in chinese ) into the rifles butt followed by a chinese symbol looking like a open book centered on a handle. At the top of the barrel it is
marked " C.A.I. S.I. A.L.B. VT. " followed by " M98 CHINA 7.92 CAL

Thank you.

Looking for sellers and buyers who believe in preserving quality and trust.

Chinese Mauser rifles were known to be used during the Korean war but were as rare as hen's teeth. I never saw one in the Division.
8mm Mauser ammo was also used in the Czech BRNO light machine gun.
A friend who collected 8mm headstamps there had a surprising collection from every country on earth except the US.
