prices sure have gone up over the last 10 years or so, I paid $100 bucks 6 years ago for my Yugo M24/47, $200 for my 98k, to help a friend out. $300 for an unissued (supposedly) M48a. I am totally satisfied with all my purchases, not that my wife is (haha). the Yugo's are solid rifles that shoot well, but I only shoot military duplicated handloads in mine, no surplus. With a scope 1-2" @ 100 yards, with iron sights 2-4" @ 100 yards, great old guns. The book "Cartridges of the World" lists many of the foreign military loadings that can be duplicated with modern loading manuals & components. These guns are great fun for the whole family. Enjoy !!

I have been told the Swedish Mauser. Of course that is what the guy that sold it to me said. You know how that goes.

Pretty much the swedes are the most accurate on average. You can find a swede that doesn't shoot well but it's not that common. But I've had excellent shooters in turks, persians and the Yugo I posted above. It's kinda hard to tell what you'll get until you get it cleaned up and shoot it.
