    Default A good buy?

    I’m considering buying this rifle but since I’m not the most knowledgeable on this rifle I’d like to ask for your guys’ opinion. Would you say it’s a good buy or would it be too much to spend $1000 on it? Thanks.

    Mod edit: removed auction link.

    As KJ stated no live auctions are allowed to be posted here, but I will say this it's a very interesting, rifle. You're allowed to post pictures here post some pictures of the rifle and I will explain more.

    Seller says in the title - "MATCHING STOCK!" and in the body "Stock has original bcd/eagle coded Cartouches throughout!! All the numbers are matching throughout however trigger plate appears to have some extra numbers. Screws are also numbered to the rifle." I don't see any of this??

    Well the 'extra numbers' part is right I guess?

    Here is the best K98k buy you'll ever find:

    If you really just need a K98 to scratch the itch, PM me for a decent little mixmaster Mauser.

    Did you see pictures of the left side of the receiver HM? The firing proofs look like mauser Borsigwalde style as well as the stock stamps.

    Looking like a Mauser Oberndorf stock with E/135 stamps...

    That's what I thought however for me only one of the photos with stock stamps was clear enough for me to even confirm.

    Jordan I didn't look at the proofs specifically and didn't notice anything offhand. I couldn't reconcile any way the stock for quite a few reasons. Still should have been externally serialed and the acceptance patterns aren't right for a '41 either.

    I would nearly 100% expect a Menzel 'C' stock with the serial and suffix on the keel and internally numbered wood. e/749 acceptance. Also the bottom metal is not only the wrong numbers but wrong supplier too.
