    No! I bought an unfired Yugo M57 for just a bit north of $200
    Mine didn't have a silencer (or whatever that extension is,)
    but still .... I sure as heck wouldn't pay anywhere near what they're asking.

    Not even close to worth it. "Unissued" is a bit moot as he's already fired it, so that fact (if it was ever true - many naive people get any milsurp that's in very good condition and just assume it was "unissued") is irrelevant.

    What you have here is a $200 pistol with a $200 more in ammo and an added compensator that I'd say adds nothing appreciable to the resale value.

    The Polish ammunition he's selling with the pistol go for $200- $250 a tin on auction sites now that the supply has dried up, and he's including one sealed tin and nearly the entire contents of another. Half the price is likely due to the ammunition.

    However, I think that price is borderline absurd.

    The M57 is a wonderful military surplus pistol and Polish 7.62x25 is decent military ammunition, but the deals really shines when the pistols are sold for less than $200 and when the Polish ammunition was $90/1260 (which was only 6 months ago).

    um, so you put a $30 compensator (check out Makorov.com, they have a link to the place that makes them)

    And all of a sudden your gun is worth 3x as much?

    Pistol recently sold for $169. Not sure about the ammo.

    I've been watching these at j&g and missed out on buying the unissued ones that were in real nice shape, they were selling them for $225 when they had them.

    I've also seem the ammo sell online for $250 a case if you can find it. Add it up $225 for the gun, $250 x 2 for the ammo, its close to the going price on the current market. I'm sure the guy could easily get, $250 a case if he separated it.

    At that price, I'm tempted to sell off the cases I've got.
