M38 sighting

I've got a line on an M38 in pretty nice condition. I'm checking it out tomorrow. I tries to look up prices on Gunbroker but couldn't find too many. Without knowing much about it at this point, does $180 sound reasonable?

Yes very. Looks like prices are coming down finally.

Depending on condition and if it's counter bored. 180 seems like a good price. I paid 235 for mine several years ago but it looks almost new.

Well, I'll probably be the owner of another Mosin variant around 10AM tomorrow ;) I'll post some pics if I nab it.

I picked it up. 1942 Izzy with matching bolt, floorplate, and butt plate. Also has the correct M38 stock rather than an M44 stock. Pics incoming.
