Hello, new here and would really appreciate any info I could get from some people that know what they’re talking about haha. Have always wanted a 1897 Trench but hard to find and expensive, have to chance to buy this and wanted to get some feedback. Seller is asking $1,200, says it functions perfect. Will include some pictures and if he’s asking too much what would be considered a fair price? Appreciate any input/help, thanks! -Chandler

Well, it  certainly is not going to fool anyone with a modicum knowledge of the Model 1897 Trench Guns.  I personally would not be inclined to pay $1,200 for it, but might consider it if the price tag was $900 or less.

Appreciate the quick response, not necessarily looking for a super nice example or anything, more so a neat piece for the collection and something to take out every once and a while. Would $1,000 be a reasonable price that I might be able to get my money back out of if I decided to let it go at some point? Thanks again for the help! -Chandler

My friend, the most valuable part of a M97 trenchgun is a correct, blued, handguard. May go for over $1,000 alone if you need one. Big Larry
