    Default K98k bnz 43 h block

    Simply an unissued condition untouched rifle with dried period issue grease on the wood (those black marks), some paint skid marks, mint mirror bore, doesn't look like the action was even worked on it. 100% matching, including the hood which has never been off. Little more than oxidation and closet age. Had the original sling on it. The metal is glistening because I wiped it with ballistol, that will dry. Nothing to the wood. Just a very crisp unissued condition matching bnz 43 that no one was bidding on. I guess the market is slow right now.

    Where was that one at? The market does seem extremely slow right now, but surprised that one fell through the cracks. Bayonets are selling but it is mostly European Buyers taking advantage of the weak dollar.

    Tks Jordan. Not much gets my attention. It wasn't cheap, but it wasn't too terribly expensive. I'm surprised it got zero bids. I've seen plenty worse sell for plenty more in the last month. My other h block is a factory mm:

    Tks Can.AR. My pics in the sun are crappy, don't do it justice. It's got old paint skid marks on it not from dripping, but from hitting something painted. The color is consistent with German WW2 military paint on weapons and ammunition crates. The stock is still rough and unwanked, with no polishing or disc/buttplate wizzing. The original sling on it has been there a long time as you can see that as it dried it dried the stock where it was pressed against it. Original hood doesn't appear ever touched. I will pay extra for rifles like this and it's been awhile since I picked up a K98k.
