I picked up an M44 cash a carry about 4 years ago.

What are these cash and carry rifles going for today?

Excellent =

Good=

Fair=

Poor=

There are some on Gunbroker at around $200, but personally, I would never pay more than $150 for one, since I bought a really nice 1944 M44 from Inter Ordnance for $59, just two years ago, so I don't see why they should quadruple in value in just a couple of years.

I'd say 200 max for a really nice looking one. They can be found used here for 100-150 ish pretty often.

M44 are getting hard to find so they are selling for more than they used to

prices on a good one are usually around 150 and a very good to excellent one could get 200

Is cash and carry worth anything to buyers?

i'd say that depends on the buyer :)

realistically by being able to do cash and carry the buyer is saving the PPT xfer fee (35 dollars) and tax. the ability to skip the 10 day wait is of course priceless ;)

okay...I guess I'll offer up my M44 for $200 cash and carry. It's not the best looking around....but lets see what happens.

If you are willing to ship I bet you could get a better deal overall.

I've seen collector's grade M44s selling for $220, I think that's probably the most expensive I've seen them. I used to buy them when they were $49.99 if you bought two ore more or $69 for one. The most recent one I bought was $119 after taxes/fees at a pawn shop about six months ago. If yours is really good condition, I'd put an asking price of $200 firm, but if it's mediocre condition, then I'd list it for the same price, but expect a lot less for it.
