I recently picked up this deactivated K98 and I am quite happy with it. The only things that bother me are the front sight hood and a missing cleaning rod (have to buy one someday). It is a 42 DOU and probably a russian capture. The thing I'm worried about is the front sight hood, it looks different from the most K98's I've seen (just by googling and hickock45 on youtube). It might be a reproduction but it does have some wear on it, it seems. It seems to be bigger than most ones I saw on the internet (in height especially). If anyone could help me out, that would be great! If anyone knows a place where they sell original cleaning rods, be sure to let me know ! Thanks!
