    Hang it on the wall. Why throw money at it? straight bolt, with a serial number on it. Also see a early front band on it.

    I didn't realize some of them came with straight bolts. I that was more of a gew 98 thing

    They did not use that type of bolt by then. This rifle shows parts replaced. The front band is also an earlier part. Where did it come from do you know?

    No, unfortunately centerfiresystems didn't clarify. I wonder how it even ended up in that condition.

    Is that a crack in the receiver ring in pic #5?

    I did a restoration on a 1914 GEW 98. You can see the before and after pics here. https://www.k98kforum.com/showthread...user-Oberndorf

    A big difference was I did not have the deep pitting you see at the wood line in this bnz 41.

    No crack, it's a slight step in diameter. You will see this on many German 98K wartime rifles.
