so after a week or so of scavenging the internet i found a collector here in Ontario whose selling out his collection. He has this 1937 k98 with all matching SN except he says that at some point during the war the barrel was changed out at the Mauser factory. Hes asking 1000$ for it and it doesn't appear to be a Russian capture. Just wanna know your guys opinion on whether its a good buy or not. Hes going to be bringing most of his collection to the gun show this weekend but i have first pick of the crop so id like to let him know by the end of the week.
