    Default BSW K98k Luft depot rifle

    Really an interesting rifle too find and not something that is easy too find either. But I think too many bidders here were thinking it was a BSW production made rifle. And didn't realize it was a Luft depot assembled rifle on a left over BSW receiver. Tried too get this rifle because it is a neat variation but for that kind of money I would rather have a true BSW factory rifle.

    Final price $3475.

    A 1939 BSW would have sold for 5k+ probably, I think the price was top end but where will you find another? Itís a cool variant and tough to find in good shape.

    True its an old ball and a tough variant. I guess two collectors been on the hunt for one of these for awhile. So if you have the money and you really wanted it. More power too them and I hope their happy with it. I just hope who bought this rifle realized it was depot rifle and not a factory production rifle.

    I am kicking myself for watching the time run down and not at least trying to buy it.

    I watched it. Was interested in what the hammer price would be. I have only ever seen one other.

    I think the last one posted up here was a bolt mismatched rifle a few months ago. But as we know anything BSW marked attracts attention.

    The only other one I have seen was a buy it now rifle for like $1900 about 4 years ago on gunbroker. I believe a known flipper snatched that right up.

    A good friend and fellow collector (not on the forum) has one. All matching. Have not seen him or it in about 10-12 years.

    I have one, matching, e block as they all are. There is also an "ee" block Gew. receiver someone here has that was sold at a good price on Gunbonker years back.

    Thank link is whacked. Here it is:

    I would have bid but a buddy here wanted it. I would have bid far less than that so it wouldn't have mattered.

    I bought my ee block from some auction house offline. Actually Dave Roberts found it for me. These Luftamt builds are really special, like the Heer depot builds. The one that just sold was really early production.
