    So I have a Styer M95/34 carbine that I acquired in a trade, and I'm probably going to sell or trade it but I'm not sure what a fair price for it is.

    It was made in Vienna, Austria-Hungary in 1917, straight-pull bolt action, chambered in 8x56R.

    Cartouche marks indicate that it was issued in WWI and re-issued for WWII. Its in excellent condition, all the serial numbers match. What makes it special is that I have the bayonet, scabbard and four Nazi marked en bloc clips (and a box of privi ammo).

    It shoots great, it has a hell of a kick though. I believe privi is now making 8x56R these days, so it's not limited to the iffy German surplus.

    What do you guys think it's worth?

    Quick search of gunbroker says you'll be lucky to get $300.
    I'm no expert on this rifle though.

    All I can tell you is I paid $144 for my M-95 one year ago from Southern Ohio Gun with no extras. Just the Rifle.

    It was like that when I got it, but I've never had a scope on it.

    I have heard that the bayonet alone was in the $150 range, so it sounds like $300 is a good price for it altogether.

    $300 seems to be double what a fair price would be in my opinion.

    Well, there ya go. It's worth about whatever someone will offer. Congrats on the sale. They are high quality rifles, just the en bloc clips and horrible kick turn off a lot of shooters.

    I thought the en bloc clips were neat, but you're right, that kick was obnoxious!

    En bloc clips are near as long as you don't lose them or damage them or run out of them and find you are unable to get replacements. Without them the rifle is a single shot.

    The same could be said for box magazines as well, although they don't auto eject... My strategy with my M1 is to have more en blocs than I will ever need.
