    Default Dou 43 with maybe sporterized stock?

    A year and a half ago I bought a kar98k with the serial number 6789 (lol) at a yard sale for $80, all the serial numbers match, but the stock doesn't look right, thoughts?

    I'd say it's a heavily sporterized stock and possibly the original one. Tough to tell without more information but it appears they filled in the sling slot and takedown disc with large wood patches.

    Ok, I just wanted to check, it was just odd cause it had so much cosmoline inside the barrel that you couldn't even see the rifling, and it looked like it had seen use, even on the weird areas of the stock.

    I'd say maybe sporterized like the sun is maybe hot ;) You did great at $80 though. That's an 80s price.

    You didn't get hurt at 80!
