    Default Budget k98

    What is the best place to get a shooter k98 and not have to be a rockefeller to buy one?

    I keep your eyes on the trader here a lot of nice k98k rifles show up for sale periodically. Sometimes you get lucky on GunBroker but you have to know what you're buying and make sure you get a good inspection period

    To me the Yugo converted K98k rifles are the best value. They are real German guns just reworked postwar, and make great shooters. All I have seen have new barrels- if something like that would interest you I have one I could post pics of. They run about $350-400 i think.

    That's a good price Mike being how Russian captures are now selling for $600 and up at the shows. I also like the East German types as well they're pretty nice too and not easy to find either.

    Agree that prices of R/Cs have greatly increased since the mid nineties. Still pays to check LGS nearby one's area sometimes for a trade-in or consignment purchase. Gunshow prices in my area can be through the roof. Last year I saw a 1943 BYF bolt mis-match for $1800!
