They used to run $79. Now you may get around $200 depending on condition. Post a pic of it here on the forum and it'll likely sell.

Nice ones which many of them were with matching serial numbers used to get over 250.00 here. truth is you do not see them as they do not get much for the quality you have meaning best to keep it. broker is ok to track but if it does not move its not a deal or flat over priced!

With thousands of these in the secondary market in new to excellent condition and originally going for anywhere from $129.00 - $149.00 unissued just a few years ago, somewhere in the neighborhood of $175.00 - $200.00 - you may get slightly more depending on the buyer and condition of the rifle. If it's a Bosian war rifle with Chobordnik's name carved in it and David Hasselhoff stickers on it who knows... Just a run of the mill rifle used in the war, $100.00 - $150.00. The Yugoslavians cranked out 100's of thousands of these in the 50's and 60's so it's not as though they are a rarity. Shop markings will bring a premium if they're some of the less common ones. People like to modify these and parts are scarce, so even a run of the mill one has some value for the parts alone.

I think it gone up in price a little, due to the fact that the supply dried up few years ago. i got 2 brand new rifles both came with bayonet and full kit for $200 each. I wouldn't paid that much if they weren't packed in cosmo and looked like new production rifles with shiny bore, 100% blue, and unblemished stocks.

I think the Model also can affect the price. some people like the original M48 with all milled parts that might fetch a premium, others are looking for M48B or M48BO which is less common that M48A.

Otherwise i say around $150 is fair for used ones.

150 is definatly a low end price I paid 250 for my elm stocked syrian contract m48 well over a year ago ,so if anyone can find these rifles for that cheap I will buy as many as I can afford!150 sounds more like a turk mauser price.

Syrian might be different and might be mroe $$$. I had a chance to get one on Gunbroker last year, but it was going for around $250. So if you paid $250 for a Syrian contract rifle you didn't pay too much for it.

I would say a fair value for a good condition M48 would be 200 bucks considering it is not of rare or uncommon origin,with the prices of 24/47's going in that range the M48's will bring just as much if not more.For what you are getting 200 bucks would be a good deal in my book on any run of the mill M48 in good condition ,with a good bore.These guns are built like tanks,and pretty accurate too.

$250 is what the gun shops here have for all matching numbers except bolts. They really are beautiful guns!

Yes the M48 is a beautifull yet rugged post war mauser,these are of high quality and worthy of the k98 breed and worth every bit of 250 bucks considering they have a good bore and wood,although I would prefer a matching one for that price.

Just keep a eye out, I got one of my Unissued M48 with bayonet from my local FFL, i was there to get ammo, saw it on the rack for $200, inspected the M48 it is still cover in light cosmo, in perfect condition all milled parts, i took it off the rack held it in my hand and never let go. Second M48A i got from local firearm forum, again for $200 it is also in Unissued condition came with full kit, bayo, slings, cleaning kit. all for $200.

All i am saying is keep a eye out, there are still deals around.
