    I wish either of the "Russian capture" junkers I have were half as nice!

    Hi James N,
    Just keep looking as there must be some real mint examples not far from you in Texas, there's more k.98's in the USA than over here for sure. You'll find one, one day.
    All the best,
    D.

    You can fix up those RCs if you want. Remove the shellac and Russian bluing, buy a sight hood, cleaning rod and locking screws and they get to look pretty good, although not matching.

    Default Other rifles from the collection

    These are a few of some of the other examples I have in the collection. They are all used on the range periodically. My parents bought me one of them for my 21st birthday, back then it cost 125 which was a lot of money then.
    I hope you like the pics.

    Nice G33 on the bottom. Matching? I love these. Had two, traded one away for a Luft helmet. bad decision.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Default 98k Thread

    Here are some pics of my favorite 98k. It's a Mauser/Oberndorf made in
    1935. I bought it from the GI who brought it home (a personal friend). It
    has some field repairs to the stock (very nicely done).
    Check it out.
    Tks,

    Hi,
    I suspect those are not field repairs but done in the factory from new. Sometimes the stocks needed a piece letting in because of a problem and as with yours it was done to a very high standard and does not detract from the gun

    The 33/40 is a matching numbered gun, and a real mule when fired.
