    Default My K98 specimens

    I just joined up here so I figured I would post a few pictures of the K98's I currently have.

    if pictures are hard to see:

    "147" 1940 with h suffix- all matching minus barrel bands and butt plate, non import marked
    "bcd 41" with f suffix- mismatch Russian capture, eagles peened, no elctro stenciling, import marked- barrel
    "byf 42" with g suffix- mismatch with no X for RC, but stock had shellac on it, eagles in good shape, Imperial German marked straight bolt, electro stencil "matched parts", import marked-receiver
    "ce44" with what appears to be k suffix, (up close pic included),Russian capture, eagles in good shape, no electro stenciling, stock marked import marked-receiver

    Nice looking group of 98s you have there. Would grab a couple of those original slings for sure. They should increase value as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah if you're in for 4 it probably won't stop there.

    Oh, I've sadly sold two over the years. I love these rifles and will try and find them when they go for reasonable prices. I have yet to pay over $475 for one. I know those days are numbered though. My initial goal was to have one from each year of the war, but I'm sure I'll end up with more than 7 total haha.
