Looking at a Parker Hale 1200TX that was done up as a C3 clone with an real Canadian C3 stock and even a Canadian C3A1 mag.

I haven't seen a 1200TX for sale for awhile let alone something with an real C3 stock.

So what would the going rate before for something like this?

By "real" Canadian C3 stock you with the individual wood inserts to adjust length of pull, and the proper attachment "bar" under the fore-end for bi-pod mounting?
I have one based on a PH Santa Barbara action but using a Hart barrel. 2nd and 3rd mags (5th to 12th rounds) through the Hart barrel gave me .637 at 100 yards with 147 FMJ whitebox .308.
I have less than $900 into this and wouldn't part with it for $1500.

That is what he claims. States the 6 round mag is also Canadian Surplus.

Always loved my Parker Hale mauser action and have a soft spot for the old Canadian C3 and this would be about as close to one as I could get.

Not made any more, but there was one on Gun Auction, Stateside(CA), in 2014 that sold for $647.66US. Likely be slightly higher here.
A clone is still a clone. Worth the same as any other PH 1200.

Finding a real C3 stock and magazine certainly can't be that common though and would up the price a little no?

C3/1200tx rifles are a commercial mauser 98 with the hinged dropping floorplate.

C3A1 rifles are a solid top "re-inforced" mauser 98 type with a detachable magazine.

your rifle appears to be a commercial hybrid of a C3/1200tx with a commercial barrel and a C3A1 type removable magazine.

You are correct.

Receiver is 1200TX, barrel is an Australian Target, stock is Canadian Surplus C3, & magazine is C3A1 surplus

Scope is a Waver T10

The gentleman I bought it from has put together 6 or 7 of them I think he said.

Hmmm. I wonder. The former owner was from out Alberta way originally. Pretty sure it's virtually identical.
