    Hi guys,
    I got a k98 bayonet on eBay for about $50. I need help in figuring out if it is real or not. I have tried looking at those codes but I cannot figure it out. It says A253 on one side, 2045 f on the other and another code is N25048k. Can you help?

    have you a picture??

    WaA253 is the WaA accaptance
    2045f is the serial number
    and N25048k is a untik marking of the marine nordsee station

    but this already gets faked

    I am pretty sure it's a fake. The seller on eBay just worded it to sound like the real deal. I checked the numbers and the top 3 google listings are all replicas. The pictures even look fake. I figured since it was new who knows. I was taken.

    I am going to have to agree I have never seen a Original TR 84/98 Marked like this in fifty years of collecting them. Poor attempt at repo to put KM marks on bayonet. There are many references to show you real ones. I personally like SeitenGewher The German Bayonet 1919 to 1945 by George Wheeler. Be a good thing to or I have found out good references and check here on the forum. Experience learned I have had my share of fakes. timothy

    Is there a section to this forum devoted to weapons in general? I have been wanting a Gewehr 43 for a long time now. I can't seem to find any. I don't mind paying the $2000 asking price, but I want to make sure I get a real one that is not too beat up. I don't need the scope, just want the weapon with a magazine round. No ammo needed. I would go for a replica actually, but can't even find those. There is one site, but they want over $3000 for one. Any recommendations?

    I agree as well. It probably came from a company like IMA and made for reenactors. Don't sweat it, we have all bought repros at some point!
