    That's true that you know what you're getting, but they're all overpriced hump jobs. I'd rather not pay $1200 for an incorrect K98 when for a few hundred more, I get get a proper matching example. It...

    To me it just looks like a $4,000 stock mismatch. Other parts look ok to me, including the bolt. You probably know where to look for this one Ham. Unsure if I should post the link or not...

    Exactly. There are more photos on the site, but they dont really show anything important. I don't believe its a depot rebuild though as it doesn't have any depot specific markings. I'm not fully up...

    You’ve just reached your size limit for uploading photos at one time. Upload about 3 or 4 at a time, then just do it over again in the attachment menu. It will add more photos to the ones you already...

    He was before my time on these forums, but I've seen some of his posts. The guy was absolutely whacko lol. Someone should make a "Best Of" compiling his most ridiculous posts.

    It's always a great idea to research and ask for opinions before making that purchase. It's a must for these rifles! I've seen way to many people overpay, some at least $1K over, on a rifle they...

    None of it should be in the white. One easy way to tell the bolt is humped is to look at the font, specifically the 2. Match it to the other 2ís on the shroud and safety and youíll see itís a totally...

    Just making sure based off the E/135 on the stock. I mean, for an all matching K98, 1500 is pretty good and it's probably set at that price for the reasons mentioned. But stock alterations really do...
