Depends on a lot of things like the year, is the kit matched or put together? We would need more info and pictures to determine a more accurate value.

Really need to see the markings. If its an Israeli late model, no where near the value of early all German.
AND, is it complete? Easy reweld?

Between $1,500 and $12,000.

It depends on parts manufacturer (particularly shroud), date, line-out or reserialized or original, and the parts on it. I've bought complete dummies and kits to strip one part, since these were often all mixed up along the way. Often, they are worth the sum of the parts, unless all matching.

Photos would be the easiest way.

If it has BSW or a "B" with circle I'll take it.

Nice looking kit but in your first post you said it had no receiver? with that receiver that is a game changer because it certainly adds value to it.

The stock on the blue bin cover looks synthetic, and the one in the other photo looks like wood. Well, which is it?

What you want to see is the markings on the rear of the shroud, top.

The top cover has zero collector value since it's been scrubbed.

It's all about markings! Shroud, bipod, etc.

This is starting to smell bad. Be careful about dishing out cash; based on what I can see (and can't) it's not $2800 or close.

DOT 1945 Hebrew marked no rec pieces went for $1125== unless its a early rare marked barrel shroud ( and I believe it is NOT because of the hole pattern) its not worth even close to $2800

good to know,
I believe Israel imported MG34s from the Czechs for their 1948 war of independence. But I wonder if they made Mg 34 in country?
anyway, I'm waiting for pics of the bbl shroud which can shed more light on the value

I was watching that auction. That price was a bargain and that kit should have sold in the 1500-1800 range.

The receiver the OP has shown pictures of is worth 500-800 bucks easy.

So, the valus of that kit, with receiver, two buttstocks and a feed could would approach 2600. I think an honest price would be about 2K.
