I think that they can sell anywhere from $100 - $200 depending on condition. The example above has a refinished stock which some can be done quite nicely.
$150 - $200 after shipping seems to be the average price range on the gun auction sites.
I paid about $180 for one in original configuration after shipping and transfer.
Here's one that recently sold on GunAuction for $126.50 plus shipping and transfer.

I really wish I'd purchased a bunch of these "back in the day".
I bought one in or around the year 2000 or so, at a local gunshop that I frequented when I was living elsewhere. I knew one of the employees there pretty well, and when I walked in one day he said "hey, I have your rifle in the back for you". I hadn't ordered a rifle, so I was a bit confused by his statement. He gave me a wink and said, "you ordered this... just wait and see".
The rifle was new-in-box, still in grease, with sling and accessories, and I paid $45 for it. Cheapest gun I've ever purchased (especially new), and the darn thing is a shooter! I'd have bought more of them then, but it was a total spur of the moment decision, and I knew nothing about those guns (more importantly, I was a poor college student back then).
I found this thread while searching for these guns, since I don't see them around in the local gun stores much these days. I really need to pick one up for my girlfriend at some point. I was shooting mine yesterday at the range, once I depleted my .308 supply. Prairie dog sized targets to 100 yards are cake with this gun, and the flip-up 25, 50, 100m sights seem pretty darn accurate for what it is.

A friend of mine paid about $100 about 3 years ago. OK condition (I've never checked the bore personally) - minor dings and scuffs from age, still has that cosmoline feel to it, blue is all there (along with the lovely cosmoline), and it shoots like a tack driver. Ejector doesn't really work though, and he never bothered to get it fixed. My girlfriend has just gotten into guns and shooting, and she loves that thing (I usually go with my friend who always bring along the Romanian). Get 'em while you can.

If someone know what they are, 200 tops, cheapest I've gotten one (gee's that was a while ago) was 65, but it had a broken FP.
$10 later, she was up and shooting, the other problem is the Tiawanese mags, they *er* work
mostly they forgot/failed to punch out the mag lug far enough to catch to keep it from going too far (and the back of them isn't rounded like the romanian ones) and far enough to keep it from slipping out, you can shim the mag well at the front, file the mag, attempt to punch it out more or apply some epoxy to build up the lug.

I saw one today for 70.00 missing the magazine but in excellent shape otherwise....
I snapped it up of course. & ordered 2 mags in the car on the way home off the internet. :)

I built up the lug on my Rumanian's Taiwanese magazine with hard solder and shaped it to fit with a file. Getting the magazine catch to hold the magazine properly is just the first of the problems.
Like magazine of the AR7, the front of the Rumanian M69 magazine before the feed lips needs to "pinch" the cartridge slightly for controlled feed. If the cartridge is loose when the rim clears the feed lips, it is more likely to misfeed.
