BSA MKIII



Log in to see fewer ads
Just agreed to purchase one. Appears to be in very good condition, with the full Parker Hale Peeps, and scope blocks. Had to pay a bit, $1100. To much or about the value? I wanted it so it really doesn't matter, just wondering what the current market is. I don't see them for sale often, then usually beat up and missing sights etc.

After the fact it doesnt matter; ie, dont second guess yourself. Get it, enjoy it (they are marvelous! ) and when it is time to move it on get what you can. No matter what, imo, youve done way better than my neighbor with a $30,000 bass boat sitting in his back yard for the last 5 years.

I paid $1100 for mine. It didn’t have the PH rear sight, so I had to find one of those ($150 extra). These rifles are super fun and astoundingly accurate. You paid a fair price and you’ll never regret it.

I have three Mk. III's and bunches of others. I can honestly say that I still have not given them a good workout. There is new ammo on the market and I am looking for that perfect 100yd champion rifle. Oh, and as far as price goes, that is reasonabe since fewer and fewer are showing up for sale.

Here is what a friend of mine did to his old beast, and I don't mean that in derogatory way, he just has to have perfection when he does things: https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum....php?t=1157319

I bought my MKIII in great shape from Cabelas about 5 or 6 years ago. It was marked $820 but there was a 10% off used firearms sale so it was $750, no irons but it did have a 30x Supertargetspot on it.

Probably my best gun purchase ever, I couldn't believe it when I saw it in the rack.
