Makes me wonder what a couple of my un-issued, Mosin 91/30's, Yugo M48's, and Yugo straight model 59 SKS's are worth on the open market nowadays after seeing parts kit prices? I haven't found any listed in similar condition anywhere so have nothing to go by for values.
Yes ,,,All of mine still have the arsenal tags on them, some not import marked, original oiled stocks and all the proper markings and are truly NOT refurbished and all are factory fresh other than one Mosin that got that crappy red selaic slopped on it @ some point, and that one was applied over most everything without being disassembled , barrel bands, trigger guards and even the original arsinal tag has some red slop on it still . The Yugo M48's & Mosins all have there brand new matching # bayo's and all of them have the full complement of all new accessory packs with them as well still. I'd bought all of these years & years ago ( like 20-30+ years ago before the big import push 15ish years or so ago) and just put them away as I already had EX condition ones that I do shoot regularly, so why would I molest any unfired / un-issued ones ?
There likely worth there weight in gold judging by parts kit prices ? If you look back in the "C&R porn " section from several years back you'll find pics of some of them I believe?
Yep, the price of firearms and parts, especially older stuff from WWII and Combloc stuff, is through the roof, really crazy! Check on GB and see what the prices are there, but only look at the rifles with bids on them.
