    Yes, buy it. Leave the chrome alone--it's approaching 60 years old and probably has developed a pleasant 'patina'. I think some guys already regard chromed WWII trophies as pieces of 1950's...

    Front site is loose.

    Hello. I have a K98 with a front site that slides freely in the dovetail. Is there a way to tighten up the dovetail a bit?
    Or other solutions?

    It's not a conversion, the enlisted/NCO tunic wouldn't have the seam up the back.

    Whoever refinished it kind of knew what they were doing: they left the bolt, hammer, and lock frame pickle gray.

    If that cleaning rod is original, which is unlikely, it's quite valuable. The stock...

    None that I am aware of.

    As long as the rifle is a mismatched shooter, and not a prime collectors piece, tapping the barrel will not impact value. Even if you are handy, don't try to do this...

    I don't know what to tell you. I would look into getting it fixed before shooting it at all, if it was mine. It's a G43, I wouldn't leave something like that to chance....it might fail with the next...

    That's not in a high-stress area per se, but I would still try to find a good TIG welder to close that up before it gets worse. As you probably know, that's an expensive part.

    The helmet shell is probably original, but the paint is not. Interesting attempt at aging, looks like they baked it in a oven.

    The banner? I kind of doubt it came from Goering's staff car. Is it...

    It's authentic, and good condition. The leather parts on canteens are often broken or hopelessly dried out.

    Matching cup is a big plus.

    I really like the A-frame. Those must have had a poor survival rate- they are kind of pointless- and I suspect most soldiers threw theirs away soon after reaching the field.

    Not a Kriegsmodell. There is some kind of putty in the groove where the barrel band spring would rest. I wonder if the end cap is real, we will never know from his pics.

    8cm mortar carrier, lengthened.

    Here is a 8cm mortar carrier, carefully sawed in half, with a piece riveted in place to make the box about 1 inch longer. When I got it, it was painted with the thick mint-green Yugo paint (with no...

    bnz42 gun show walk-in.

    Every now and then, one of the 12 million K98s manufactured turns up at a St. Louis gun show. It's rare, but it happens.

    Paid $300 for this one back in April. It didn't have a bolt (bought one...

    An M30 (1930s production) would have serial numbers in the 700,000 to 800,000 range. It would also have the Mauser banner on the side of the frame, 12-groove grips, and the so-called "universal...

    Looks like one that came out of China in the early 1990's, and a better-than-average example. Interesting that yours has a decent bore, most were terrible. The 12-groove grips are correct for a...
