Just recently returned from gun show this past weekend. Just thought I would pass along advice to novice collectors. I have much to learn myself but the fakery is blatant. I passed by a table with KAr 98Ks that were suppose to be original. The stocks looked like they were manufactured the day before the show. Just for fun I ask seller if waffenamp stamps were present and unpeened. He ask me what a waffenamp stamping was. One gun looked to be restamped by a child. the best part is that he was asking $800 for this abortion. I think better finds can be found at local gun stores turned in by vets. Just thought I would suggest bringing an expert along when making purchase. Damn shame we have to be on look out for these forgeries with hard earned money.
