    Don't think this one is correct. ZF-41's don't show up until 1941/42.

    ok thank so much,

    but perhaps the scope has been mount on the rifle later ?

    i have made some reserach and the mark 243 seems to be from Borsigwalde fabrik.

    I 'm a French shooter but new on the k98, hope one day to have a good one with scope to shot ...

    Hi
    The scope mount is not original.
    IT is a new made kurvenstueck with a side rail.
    An original rail is deeper and the stock must be cut out in that area.

    The rifle you picture is not an original war time ZF41. It was put together post war. Borisgwalde did produce ZF41's but not until late 1941.
