I've just got this K98 in but had a few queries. It's an S/27 made by Erma, 1937 but the stock is missing it's stock disk. Does this point to it having being restocked after the war? It has an X stamped into the receiver, is this a Russian capture stamp? Very few Waffenampts on it, only on the front band and rear sight. Markings on the bottom of butt look like 9023 and a small square with K8 or K9 ???
The sling doesn't have the metal buckle...
Any ideas on the receiver markings?
Thoughts overall, the wood looks better in real life, the flash in pics make it look worse. It was pretty cheap so no worries, I like it, just keen to work out a bit of it's history.
