This is it, its got the yugo crest on the top, Mod.98 *does not have 48 on it*
front sight is Eagle with 18 under it. Bolt has Eagle 25 on it. Serial# matches on stock, reciever, and floorplate of 90**. Bolts serial # is 84**. Any idea what year the Eagle 18/25 are? and whats the value roughly? Thanks!

It's been drilled and tapped for a scope mount, that reduces value somewhat. Prices on the Yugo M48/98 or MOD98 has gone up in the past year. Even with the drilled receiver I would say at least $200. It does look nice and may bring considerably more on Gunbroker.

I picked this Yugo MOD98 up a year and a half ago for $167+shipping off GB, I think those prices are long gone.

Yeah when I bought it a year ago I payed 200 at a pawn shop. Had to get it, had just turned 18 and SO wanted my first gun to be from ww2 haha. But it was in HORRIBLE condition, barrel was a rust color. Somebody had *tried* to stain and laquer it, but they did it poorly, some spots were red, some were brown, some were green. couldnt even see any wood grain at all.

drilled and taped for ZRAK scope mount bases
if it is the value of the rifle is increased
