Im new to the board, although im a long time "lurker" and i just picked up a supposed k98 sniper and was wondering if anyone can give me some insight on exactly what i got. Its a DUV 41 code, all matching EXCEPT the bolt, no scope, and looks to be ok TO ME, but after researching I see that all duv codes have the zf41 scope. Did i buy a fake?

Hi, I'm sorry to say it isn't one of the mounting systems used on WWII German sniper rifles. It's not a "fake" though in that the bases are not copies of authentic WWII types. A lot of German rifles had commercial bases/scopes put on them in the post-war years for hunting.

ok I understand now....what would you say the value of this rifle is? Maybe $600? it doesnt seem like claw mount rings will fit these bases.

Bases appear with out better pics to be commercial Sempert/Kreighoff bases by the grooves and mounting rail present. not a real sniper
