    Default Most valuable K98

    I am fairly new to collecting WWII memorabilia (mostly German) and especially like k98's, so this may seem like a dumb question. What is arguably the crown jewel of K98's. Either the most rare or desirable. I know condition is 99.99% of the value but just in general. For example in 1911's the most valuable are Singer's and more so North American Arms. So what is the most valuable or desired K98 minus snipers?

    If your saying the holy grail. Meaning the rarest of a standard K98k rifle by year and by manufacturer. I can think of only one rifle. Granted there are many other extremely rare K98k rifles such as a 1939 337, S42/K, S27/G, etc. But this is the rarest out of all of them because only one is known. And its only a Russian capture K98k rifle not an all matching bringback or a partial matching bringback.

    And that rifle is a 1936 BSW.

    +1 ^ A 1936 bSw would be it for me as well. In any condition.

    Isn't only one 1936 bSw known to have survived? I've looked for years on google and never found a picture of it.
