    Default New to K98s, I have a question?

    Good Evening, I am new to this forum and need someone's help. My neabour brought me a German K98 WW2 bring back of her fathers. He has passed away and she would like to sell it. I have no real knowledge of these other than to look for serial numbers everywhere. It appears to be in service grade range with a nice bore(needs a good cleaning, may have a few pits). Finish wear is about 70%. I find serial numbers match everywhere except the magazine floor plate, which is different. It has a sling that has come apart at one location but I guess is original. I know that it is missing the cleaning rod and front sight hood. We have not been able to find any paperwork as yet. I have listed some photos to help out in my quest. Any info. on what to look for would be helpful. Who made it, maybe a value.Thank you for your help.

    Looks like a nice untouched dot43 with the welded H upper barrel band. This rifle is also in the correct r letter block for this variation. A very interesting K98k from this manufacturer. I don't collect Brünn made K98k rifles much but they did make some good looking K98k rifles.

    To piggyback on what Warrior said, it was made by Waffenwerke Brünn I in German occupied Czechoslovakia. Luckily the cleaning rods and sight hood were not numbered on these, so you can make it correct with replacements. It’s a nice rifle with only the floorplate unmatched. I’d say as far as value, maybe $1100-1400?
