    I've had this sitting in my safe for several years now and never shoot the thing. Haven't been keeping up with value on them so seeing what it would be worth now before I post it up with pricing way off.

    The bore isn't super shiny, looks like some minor surface rust. Could probably get it all off with a good scrubbing. Still cycles and works just fine. Always held about as good a group as you can expect from one.

    Also have an unopened spam can of rounds to go with it

    How is that scope mounted? Do you have the rear sight? Also post a pic of the left side of the receiver and one of the inside with the bolt open.

    Scope is mounted through the rear sight mount with a simple screw. No drilling or anything was done to the rifle. ImI sure the rear sight is somewhere but no idea where at the moment

    Those marks along the wood on the right side are interesting but I don't see anything about this one that would make it less common - it's a round receiver Tula boom stick.
    Gonna take a stab at it: $140 for the spam can, $250-ish for the gun, no idea on the scope.
    Please get more opinions before you sell it.

    Since I have no idea what that is I'm going to say no. I'm the original owner as well

    With these rifles, there are generally two values. The first value is the hopeful value that somebody else who has one tells you his is worth. The second is what somebody who doesn't already have one will actually give you for yours. Full on overestimated Gunbroker/Cabelas retail panic asking price on that package would be about $450-$500. But I think Catfish's estimate (roughly $400 for the package) is pretty close to the real numbers that I have seen these actually moving at.

    I paid $225 from the BST here for my 1942 round receiver Izhevsk, and it was in good condition with about 100rds of ammo, a non matching bayonet, and mag pouches. I watched it sit here for sale for about a month....
