    The two compass variants depicted, early and late “A” marked show the difference. The early has counter clockwise divisions, the late has clockwise divisions, hence the need for the “A” to clearly...

    Douche move that established the value of his word as the delta between $40 and $100, i.e. $60. He describes a patch of missing paint but doesn't depict it. I'd rather eat that can than buy it from...

    Triggerguard and floorplate are humpjobs and stock is mismatched. Probably a matching barreled action, everything else added.

    That's very cool and in the original "panzer grey" early AFV / equipment color, as would be appropriate for early DAK stuff.

    I guess you could say I'm interested in collecting, and am somewhat of a "hardcore collector." However, I'm a shooter too and shoot my two K98k mm bolt range / hog rifles quite a bit. I don't shoot...

    Yes well, collect by committee with Shooter Ike then. No need for silly books with muses like that.

    Effectively, I’d rather a K98k than a Zf.41, so there is likely merit to the vet remark on that....

    You should spend more time actually studying and researching and less time listening to stories. I’d recommend the K98k book series.
