I'm looking at purchasing a Czech made Turkish 98/22 (cresent on receiver/ Farci rear sight) in very good condition from a local fellow. I can't find any for sale on GunsAmerica or Gunbroker, does anyone have any idea what these are going for? The guy wants $150 for a FTF. There is no sling or cleaning rod with the rifle. Does this sound like a good deal? Thanks in advance for any input.

$150 for a FTF

I found a few completed auctions for that model, all within the last three months.

It looks like the going rate online is anywhere from $100-300. Wouldn't mind getting one of the longer barreled Mausers myself. Say, where is this guy and what's his phone number? :p

No, just kidding. Thanks for your help. This rifle has a beautiful bore, but little finish left on the metal. I think it sounds like a decent deal, so I'll sleep on it. Again, thanks for the links grimjaw.
