$100, give or take 19 is fine for retail. If it looks clean and mechanically sound, get it, you won't regret it.

I got mine for $100 OTD at a gun show, without the accessories. It looked sound, even though the muzzle had a nearly solid "dust plug."

I didn't check the headspace. I just cleaned it up real good, visually inspected it the best I could, and gingerly fired it at the range. I was pleasantly surprised that it went BANG, not boom.

- as a funny aside, weeks later a different gunshow dealer heard that I didn't get the bayonet when I bought my Mosin. He reached under the table and gave me one. During our conversation about the joys of shooting the Mosin, he sold one to a young man that was listening to us.
