    Hey Deputy,
    Since those 2 pages have ruined the book for you, I can understand you not wanting to look at it. Me on the other hand, I have no problem with learning a little more about the K98k and related production. I would even be willing to take that offending book off your hands. Of course now that you have taped or pasted pictures in it, it is not in it`s original configuration and has lost value. I`d be willing to pay postage for it. PM me .

    Default OP, I feel your pain and share your anger.

    But my disappointment is even more morally devastating and emotionally damaging than the pain and suffering inflicted from being viciously ambushed and brutally attacked by photos of a Stg 44 in a book about 98k's .

    It is my understanding that nowhere in these books is there a chapter dedicated to sporterized Carcano rifles, In-And-Out Burger's famous "Double-Double" burger (2 meat patties and 2 slices of cheese!), and vintage ladies' bicycle seats.

    I'm sorry, but a set of books on Mauser rifles that does cover these subjects is like coffee without sugar.....no, it is worse than that, it is like coffee with salt instead of sugar.

    I may never be able to walk straight again due to the resulting butt-hurt from this outrage.

    You will be hearing from my lawyers shortly.

    My lawyer's name is not shortly, but I can proudly say that I shot the sheriff, but should have shot the deputy instead. duh.
    In thanks for you all in the forums, I offer this, albeit small:
    If anyone has any questions regarding garage doors and openers, feel free to ask. Been working on them for 25 years.

    He just mad that there wasn't no photos of Mexican black velvet paintings of Jesus, Elvis, and clowns. And they got to be color photos, cuz black and white just don't do them no justice, u-no?

The swjXE MP44's are accepted as legitimate, but many collectors disregard the swjXE 98k because they don't believe the code was real- the inclusion of that information was important. However, if that's your only gripe I guess that's a win?

    By the way, most of the photos that are submitted by collectors are not up to the quality needed for print.
    As a commercial photographer, I looked at the picture posted for example by the "other" member. The lighting and lack of shadows was good, but I would never submit it for print due to low resolution, inappropriate background, and the rifle top should have been tilted more toward the camera. . Funny how he posted a pic to show what great photos you could have used, and, as an example, posted a sub-par pic.

    I know most of the pics that I post in these groups is substandard, but I've gotten lazy and use my i-Phone for personnel, non-paid, work.
