    1939 Gustloff...Any gents here pick this one up?

    Has some issues (bolt mm, import, lightly sanded stock?), but it could've been much worse and I was seriously tempted. I just wasn't currently in a position to take a swing at it sadly and I honestly wasn't sure what the value would be in its current state anyways... They don't exactly grow on...

    1913 DWM police-issue

    Well, here's my small contribution to the new forum! I'm far from a Luger expert but as I understand it, this is a Dusseldorf police issue pistol, sporting a Boehler Stahl barrel. It is mostly matching except one of the grip panels... and the magazine has presumably been humped to match (30s...

    PPK Auction: What am I missing, gents?

    I've been halfway keeping an eye out for a decent, reasonably priced PPK and ran across this gem: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/877427623 So what gives? I know it's a police pistol and comes with a holster but isn't this sky-high for what it is? I'm assuming it's a post-war goldplating job...

    SSZZA4 rifle for posterity...1940 BLM SSZZA4 rifle, serial no. 2834

    Just wanted to bring attention to this sporterized 1940 BLM SSZZA4 rifle, serial number 2834, in case it pops up miraculously whole again at some point in the future. Bubba ruined a nice one! https://www.gunbroker.com/item/832725524

    Mystery Imperial shield?

    Hello guys! I ran across this shield once inletted into a pre-WWI Mauser buttstock and would appreciate any insights as to what it might signify! Anyone seen anything like this before?

    Simson Gew.98b - Darn you, bubba!

    Simson Gew.98b - Darn you, bubba? Well, I saw this up for auction recently and having never seen an actual Gew.98b (as opposed to a K98b or "modified Gew.98"), I decided to go for it. Sadly it has been cut down and the original stock is long gone. I had some hope it could be a legit 98k...

    G.98/40 price check...

    Hey gents! Did anyone happen to follow the auction of this 98/40? https://www.gunbroker.com/item/772275783 I had it on my watch list and halfway forgot about it until last night right before it sold. It looked like a decent example of a hard to find year and the sight hood was a nice plus but...

    Ac44 k43

    Well, I bought this old K43 warhorse a few months ago. This is the first of the breed for me and admittedly I am still learning. Neat combination of bluing and phosphating and complete and matching excepting a missing cleaning rod. I'm assuming a typical 12.5in 98k rod will suffice? It came with...

    Shooter quality G/K43 advice?

    Hey guys, for the last few months I've been keeping my eyes open for a solid, shooter grade G/K 43 for a reasonable price. It'll be my first of the breed and I've wanted one for a long time. I was looking for something that presents well and is substantially original (perhaps a few mismatched...

    What’s up with my butt...plate?

    This buttplate is on a bSw stock and it seems unusual. It’s not numbered or waffenamt marked at all. It is only marked with a “B” and nothing else. I know bSw components were often “B” marked so is this some sort of bSw armorer’s spare or from something else altogether? If a bSw part, I would’ve...

    1900 Spandau Gew.98

    So I picked up this 1900 Spandau a few days ago. Took a bit of a gamble on it and probably overpaid at $550 but it appears to be a legitimate bolt mismatch, Paul informed me it has a potentially interesting unit marking and frankly I've just wanted an early Gew.98 of some flavor for a while...

    Magdeburg-reworked Vz.23...

    Well this is somewhat of a continuation of this thread: http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread.php?29056-Vz-24-stock-question So I went to an estate auction today and was able to get my hands on this little rifle! This, along with a late Dot 44 98k, was brought back by a local veteran who passed...

    Vz.24 stock question...

    Caught wind of a Vz.24 coming up for auction locally and can’t quite figure out what I’m seeing in regards to the stock. The rifle is German modified with a sling slot cut in but no take-down washer. What’s odd is it doesn’t appear to have ever had a wrist swivel or grasping grooves. My initial...

    Man, I've missed this forum...

    Took a little break but it sure is nice to drop back in and look over the treasure trove of information here, not to mention seeing some familiar names. Just ordered volumes I & II of the 98k series and trying to catch up on the latest goings on! EDIT: Still on the lookout for that long lost...

    ND M40 & M42 pics

    Mauser99's wonderful stahlhelm posts inspired me to post up some pics of my only two examples. Both are typical no-decal examples, with the M42 being in the better condition of the two. They are nothing particularly special, but I think they are pretty decent representatives of typical...

    Unusual 1938 JP Sauer?

    Just noticed this 98k on Gunbroker and, ignoring the salesman's pitch (unfired! mint!), this rifle just seemed a little unusual to me and I wanted to know more about it. Is it correct to have a S42K marked stock on a '38 JPS? Also, does the Eagle P really denote police or is this another...

    Fantastic!

    After much anticipation, my copy of Kriegsmodell came in today and, for what its worth, I just wanted to thank Mike Steves and Bruce Karem -along with everyone else who contributed- for such a fantastic piece of work. Thank you and your efforts are very much appreciated! The book is just...

    BCD 4 discovery...Many pics!

    Some of you are probably already familiar with this rifle from my post on Gunboards, but I wanted to share it here too. I just just discovered this forum and I guess it is more appropriate than ever for me to buy Mr. Farb's and BruceK's Kriegsmodell book! Anyway, I went to a local estate...
