Well, NM isn't known for big spenders, $500 was what I could get for a Russian capture, nice looking but mix and force match, reblued, at the last gun show. As that was what I paid for it a couple years earlier, no loss, but it didn't make me rich either.
A decent 7.65 Para I might pay $600 for as there are much less around (so it might just be a barrel mismatched with a regular frame).
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
