I've been looking to add a decent K98 to my collection for quite some time however I'm not knowledgeable in them. I recently came across this one at one of my favorite pawn shops and took a chance on it. The price seemed right. There is no external serial number on the stock although there is a serial number stamped inside the barrel channel and inside the hand guard, both match the receiver. All parts that I can find numbers on match the receiver to include the small parts of the rear sight, trigger, and firing pin not shown.
Although hard to see in the pictures the barrel is marked in large numbers 131 then small numbers 43 and letters CYW.
I have researched a bit and found the manufactures information but any additional information that the experts on here could share would be most appreciated. Please excuse the poor picture quality. I am away from home and do not have my own camera and preferred backdrops.
