Price can run the gammut on these depending on pinned barrel vs. screwed in barrel, with or without bayonet, factory markings, stock finish, etc.

Anywhere from $175 to $275 around the St. Louis area. That is another thing - prices swing widely depending on part of the country. Reportedly up in the South Dakota area it may be worth $125 to $150.

You might want to double-check the price by looking for similar ones on the gun auction sites. But I think $250 is a fair price for a paratrooper. Definitely not a screaming deal, but not overpriced. I wouldn't pay much higher than that though.
