    Thumbs down BYF 44 High Turret- Turd Alert for misrepresentation

    This rifle is unfairly represented in the description to fool someone. The water proof statement concerning stock is a ridiculous claim. That's a new one. Stock is at least ruined and not done as stated to water proof the stock by a WWII Sniper. Stock was sanded and refinished post war most likely. German snipers did not sometimes water proof stocks as stated in description. Stock may even be replaced. Who knows from these photos. Way over priced for something with very low collector value, since it's not in any way still in original war time condition. Link, pictures, and description below.

    https://simpsonltd.com/germany-k98k-sniper-c48472/

    Description:

    8mm; 85% blue, Excellent bore, Good stock, 23.6'' barrel, K98k MAUSER OBERNDORF ALL MATCHING SNIPER RIFLE.

THE OPTIC IS A 4X DIALYTAN SCOPE NUMBERED 72509 CODED BMJ FOR HENSOLDT & SOHNE, MOUNTED IN THE HIGH TURRET CONFIGURATION. THE RETICLE IS THE 3 POST TYPE. THE BLUING IS FADING ON THE REAR BAND, TG AND SUN SHIELD ON SCOPE. THE STOCK HAS BEEN REFINISHED BUT THAT WAS SOMETIMES DONE BY THE INDIVIDUAL SNIPER TO WATERPROOF THE STOCK. WE GUARANTEE THIS RIFLE TO BE A LEGITIMATE SNIPER., s/n 487xxe

    I'm dumb when it comes to German sniper rifles and even I knew this one stank. Simpson's star is falling fast.
    Some P38 "experts" are yo-yo's who, for some reason lost on me, can't or won't accept the truth when it's staring them in the face.

    I just saw this on their website and knew one of you guys had to have posted about it here on the forum. Sure enough, here it is lol. Iím not up in sniper rifles all that much, but this one seemed off. Simpson has been seriously screwing up with K98ís for sure

    Iíd stick with their Swiss and Swede weaponís... nothing else. Those items still seem good and plentiful. Everything else I just pass by and close my eyes.

    Yes. I saw that too. I thought that could be a duffle cut and the reason for all the stock work as well. The pictures arenít the the best though.
