    4th you got a nice one with all the gadgets.

    Jim I ask a friend and gave him what info you posted, which isn't much to go on, but he said he'd guess it's worth between 150-200 depending on the arsenal and over all condition.

    Problem with the Ariskas, in my research, is the price is all over the place.
    More I researched, less I understood what makes their value.
    The Jap writing on these things, one small line changes everything with that Jap scribble they use. For I.D. purposes.
    I have seen prices from $200 too $3,250.
    Guess the small Paratrooper Ariska and the ones school kids used for training, are in high demand.
    Over 3 Million of these were produced.
    Ones with the Mum, are almost all U.S. Military bring back.
    Even the bayonets vary and carry different values.
    Factor in that a lot of G.I.s converted them too hunt with.
    Hell I dont know. Price may rise, may go down. Who knows.
    I traded a Romy AK for it. I was happy my Bro was happy.

    I have to agree with the general concensus. I'll just keep it. I really didnt pay much for it. its the shorter 26 inch barreled version. stock has some initials scratched in it, but it gives it character. I found a sight that deciphers where it was made etc. To me its just a cool old rifle, that I wouldnt go out and buy another one. I posted pics a few months ago. I think it was in the C and R section. jim

    My buddy found this one on the rack at Gander, marked "unknown Mauser" for $49. No mum, but it's got the dust cover on the bolt, and the AA sights.
    I doubled his money for him.

    The dust cover in itself, is probably worth more than the price paid for the gun.
    The Japs heaved them, due too rattling and making too much noise.
