    Like an unopened case of Luftwaffe stamped K98's that the Americans found in Iraq in 1991. They were leant against a kerb and had a an APC run them over according to legend.....

    I wasn't sure where to post this, so I decided to post it here. Hopefully Doug, Ade, or another moderator don't fry my butt for this and just move it to the appropriate place. Sorry, gents, but I had to share this story. Enjoy!

    Already a thread Samir, it was turned in roughly halfway between you and I. Would have loved to have discovered and woodworked this one if it is properly papered.

    John, in my dads native country (Yemen). These fetch for like $400-$700, and the MG34 & 42 fetch for like $1200-$1500. The MG's are harder to find, but the STG's are a dime a dozen over there!

    LOL! You are a sick puppy John.

    Its hard, and if i'm not mistaken you aren't allowed to bring these into the states. I asked Scott about it too. I have an original K98 and Scott told me not to bother! They won't allow you at all let alone an STG44 or an MG.

    Everyone there thinks the weapon of choice is the AK, so don't care too much for the STG.
