Stopped in at a local gun shop on the way to the range today. I was doing my usual perusal of the milsurp rifle rack when I saw it. At first I was very excited. Then I saw the price tag. I was so shocked I didn't really even check it out. Although, my initial impression was very positive.
Have these rifles gone up that much in price? I have been wanting one for a while and never see them at the gun shows I frequent. Have any of my fellow board members seen any for sale lately? I may be able to work out a better price, but it would still be expensive. I was hoping to find one in the 200.00 to 250.00 range.

They still go for $200-$250 on the auction sites.

If I remember correctly, I gave $110 for the 2A1 that I converted to a "Scout" rifle.

My 2A1 (1968 vintage) "Station Rifle" cost me $130, six months a go. It had and has issues i need to correct but is accurate with the issue sights on it. I may put a scout mount on it.

In the past 6 months I've gotten a good one for $175 and a very good one for $225, both on auction sites. I saw a very good one at a show for about $250. Over $300 is too high. Keep looking.
