I know where there is a very nice Greece marked SAR-8 sitting with harris bp, claw mount, a japan made scope (no visible makers mark), and 8-10 new mags. Non butthole stock, pg, fh . Came out of the sheriffs dept.

What's a reasonable price for the package?

Without examining it and the parts, would say $1200-1500

I'm not up on the price of anything myself but there is one now on Guntoker for a lot more than that. I would think as Grinder said which would be an good price especially if the mount is German.

Having had several German 91's i just got another SAR-8 and am geting all the extra junk i think i need for it as Hensoldt, wood, heavy carrier etc. i can tell no difference in it and the German 91. You will love it.

The SAR 8 is the post 1989 import ban version of the SAR 3 G3 clone....so it has the stigma of 922r hanging over it. What people are asking on GB and what they are getting are two different things.

Wouldn't go more than $1100 for a SAR8. I'd forget about that one and look for a SAR3.

The G3 and SAR3 are fairly rare.

There's a G3 marked Springfield that's even more rare. I've only ever seen one for sale.

HK lore has it that only 500 of those marked G3 made it in before the need to change the markings to SAR-3. Of those five hundred only the last 300 or so were even required to carry the made in Greece stamp. Here's what the roll markings look like:

This one had the Made in Greece stamp added in the U.S. as Springfield did a bunch of them (see above), evidently because BATF had some objections to the markings. Later on and as the SAR-3 it was done at the Greek factory.

In 20 years of virtual online shopping (GB, etc) I have seen 1, maybe 2 of thsoe for sale.
