    Yugo M48 Mauser value

    I have been offered a Yugo Mauser [M48?] in 8mm. It has been sporterized with an Archangel stock a forward mounted scout scope folding bipod and fitted for detachable magazines. 3 10 rd mags included. Original wood stock included too.
    I'm trying to figure out what its worth. Not many comps on GB.
    Any Mauser Meisters on board??

    I found this completed auction if that's any help.

      Yugo Mausers in VG condition probably go for between $350 - $500.
      The Archangel stock I see online for this runs about $169.
      I'm a big fan of the Yugo Mauser. Especially for those that cannot get a German K98 at a reasonable price (not anymore anyway), the Yugo is an excellent choice and most were arsenal refurb'd or in great condition that are out there

        Great guns but the cheap 8mm ammo disappeared a long time ago

          One of the side effects of being an old fart is remembering when Mauser ammo was available by the wooden case for 9 cents per round. It really wasn't that long ago, all things considered.

          The green surplus spam can was under $100 when I was getting it...those were the days

        So a $600 ask for the package is fair?
        I'm seeing plinking ammo for $.75 /rd and hunting ammo around $1.40.
        I don't think I'll be using this for hunting though

          it's a "fair" price IMHO.....but cash makes deals...far often for less

        My first question before I bought it ---- can I find the ammo for it & how much ?

            For what it is worth, I paid Classic Firearms $450 about 4-5 years ago. Then put about $30,000 of my time into getting the cosmoline out of the stock and refinishing it.

              It turns out it's an M24/47 not a 48
              Isn't it great when people don't know what they have?
              Owner is still trying to locate the original wood stock and ammo
              Take it or pass???

                Uhh I dont know if it just me, but every time I see a sporterized Surplus Rifle I cringe. I believe these guns should be left as is so that one can appreciate the history. I would go for it if you can get the original stock.

              Yikes, bubba really put an effort into this gun … stay away from it unless he offers it for $250.

                I personally wouldn't buy anything sporterized unless I could make it back to original without too much effort. There's zero collector value in it otherwise.

                So, if you think it's a good hunting or plinking/target rifle for $600.....go for it. Seems to me there are better options.
