During World War II, the Soviet Union captured millions of Mauser Karabiner 98k rifles and re-arsenaled them in various arms factories in the late 1940s and early 1950s. These rifles were originally stored in the event of future hostilities with the Western democracies. These rifles, referred to by collectors as RC ("Russian Capture") Mausers, can be identified by a crude "X" stamp on the left side of the receiver.
what is the worth for that kind of rifle?
would you classify it as less worthy?
i know that bnz mean it was created in Mauthausen-Gusen Concentration Camp in Austria, adjacent to the Stehr factory.
i'm not sure if i should buy it or not....
