I got my girlfriend to spill the beans, and she sent me these pictures today:
She got me a bnz 1941 Russian capture K98 for Christmas!
She doesn't know anything about firearms, but she promised me that it's in really good shape, and the barrel is almost mint. In general, it's really clean and is in great shape.
She said it's still covered in sticky stuff (cosmoline).
Once I finally receive it, I'll post some better pics!
