    Default Is this worth it?

    I've been looking into getting a K98. Had a guy offer me one he got from Mitchell's Mausers, bcd 4 date code. Not sure on if it's matching or not. Wants 500 for it. Says it has good rifling. I'm not a big collector just like to have a variety of things to shoot and enjoy. Any other info youd like?

    Pimp shined Russia capture rifles that was done by Mitchell's are not even worth close to $500. Your better off learning the ropes here for awhile until a decent bolt mismatched rifle shows up here for close to $900. Be a good entry rifle for you and a far better invest too, as well as a nice shooter.

    Stick around here for a little while before you start spending the green!

    I wouldn't pay $200 for Mitchells Mauser crap.

    They have absolutely 0 collector value, maybe if you just want a shooter.

    Certainly not worth $500 to anyone who knows better.

    If you want a 98k save your money for something not humped and pimp shined...
