WTK value of Yugo Mauser m48

I already have a Yugo mod 98 and always wanted to also get a M48. Prices have been increasing in last couple of year as fewer are brought in by distributors. I found a VG one locally which comes at $460 with 200rds of Yugo 8mm surplus (140 is M75). Views?

M48

Seems a bit high to me. Last one I bought was right here in the mp, excellent condition and sub $300. I would talk them down or keep looking.

Thank you. I agree, in fact I passed on it. I saw a couple sold in the past few days on GB in the $325 range, I will keep watching the MP (if any member has one for sale please let me know). I have an excellent mod.98 which I bought from JGSales four years ago for $250, I would have bought a couple more if I had known how fast the supply was going to dry up.

I just put one out at work. It was still packed in cosmoline in the box with the bayonet, sling and ammo pouch. We put $359 on it, it sold in under an hour. $460 is way too much.

I think the only thing that might add value to a Yugo M48 is if it's a "sneak".

I disagree - $460 is not a horrible deal because of the ammo included.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."
