If it is in unaltered condition, $150 is a great price as far as collectors are concerned.

As a shooter, you'd be better served with a $150 Mosin.

American commercial 8x57 ammo is pretty anemic, in deference to all the weaker guns chambered for it out there.

Milsurp amd European 8x57 is loaded much hotter..... would be bad ju-ju for an Gew88.

Here is some reading for those interested:
