Today i finally payed off the gun I had on layaway, it is a beautiful M38 all the numbers match from 1943, the stock looks like it was refinished but i dont mind its an amazing looking rifle only paid 165 for it, I will post pics tomorrow :)

yes and no. There is about 20 million of them, proly most of them in this country alone. Most are had for about 100 bucks. usually a rarer type model than usual goes for more money, or if it is an all made in russia matching numbers with a laminate stock are a bit more. and then it also depends or markings and where made.
they are just now starting to dry up , and are getting harder to find.
Even at Houston area gunshows, I am not seeing 38's, but some 44's, and
