    Default another rifle 'sale'. ridiculous by any measure

    Just throwing this out for comments/evaluation. Does anyone think this is legit? IMHO the price is WAAYY beyond just insane. Also IMHO it's not even that nice of a rifle. Buffed and shined with some kind of goop, both on the metal and wood.

    Nicest Mauser on the western front, freshly sanded, clear coated and cold blued. They don't come any better than this. Yours for only $3,500. Once in a lifetime opportunity, grab it before it's gone forever.

    Someone with more money than brains...

    Shroud and safety should be 4 digits if memory serves. My "f" block is anyway. Shroud digits are even facing the wrong way.

    SHINY!

    I believe the buyer is mentally ill. That is ridiculous.
    WTB/WTT: (1)late E/H marked bcd stock either standard or semi-Kriegs; (2)unnumbered late MO Zf-41 stock, Kriegs or standard stock; (3)transitional late unnumbered type dot stock which uses bandspring and has bayo mount but no cleaning rod hole; (4)unnumbered byf standard stock as typically found on some byf 44 K and L block rifles; (5)unnumbered E/H bnz standard stock as typically found on bnz.4 and bnz 44 N, O, and P block rifles; (6)any bnz Kriegsmodell stock either with E/H or without

    People who buy K98s like this at this price are people who really want a “real German K98”, but don’t know anything about them. They don’t know what correct examples should actually look like, what markings they should have, what looks wrong, etc. Most people want one of those Nazi rifles from WWII! You get more than one person with that mentality bidding on Gunbroker, and they get into bidding wars and that price keeps rising. It’s been said before, but a little research goes a long way.

    I wish the buyer would call me. I have one that’s not sanded with same bluing and almost as nice. I’d let him have it for say $3250?

    Look at the bid history. What’s gunbroker.com-user. Is that a real screen name? With 2 purchases. Shill bidder?
