Default Izzy 1943 Ex-Sniper Mosin value

Just wondering what a 1943 Izzy ex-sniper Mosin with matching numbers, in good condition, would be worth. Thanks for your replies!

"Matching numbers" could mean original matching, forced matching, etc. Is this a refurb?

I would assume it is a force matched refurb, if so $250

Pics would be necessary to make any other determinations

Ex-sniper. $350. $250 is for regular Mosins.

$250-275

1943 Izhevsk is the most common PU(and likely sniper in general) in the world. But it is still an extra sniper and will bring about a $50 premium over a standard 43 Izhevsk.

$350 is high m44 and mid m38 pricing. An ex sniper is not worth $350

How hard would it be to pop a repro scope on there? Would I have to modify the stock?

Not terribly hard but you could sell the rifle and get yourself a repro sniper for under $600 with all the work done.

You would spend more chopping up a ww2 relic than buying one that has already been modified

I have seen a couple of legit 43 and 44 Izhevsk PU refurb snipers sell in the $750-850 range in the past 6 weeks. It would be a better investment to hold out for one of those. And yes some ex snipers can be worth more than $350. There were only 2,020 Tula PU's made in 1942 so they usually fetch more money. Ex-PE's and Ex-PEM's also usually fetch more than ex-PU's.

As noted an ex-sniper can gather a $50 premium. But iit depends on bore condition., if original scope serial is still intact on an Ozhevsk or the standard barrel marking on a Tula.
Some of the welded screw shanks are fairly easy to remove. Others have very deep welds and the welds are very hard and can be difficult to drill out etc.
