    I have added to the collection since my last post,

    I have picked up this Gewehr 98, it is a 1918 dated one and I believe it to be a Turkish contract rifle (correct me if i'm wrong). it is a mismatched version but I have yet to see one with full matching numbers.
    it came with 3 original bayonets 2 of which have their original scabbards and 1 has what I believe to be its original frog.
    here are some pics,

    If anyone could give me a rough idea of what they think this lot is worth, as I think I got quite a good price ,it would be great

    Hi Liam,

    Its difficult to tell from the pictures the condition of the rifle and the bayonets. But if the metalwork on the rifle is good, then it is probably worth around 750. The earlier dated ones tend to fetch a bit more because they have a greater probability of being used in action. The bayonets - if in average condition, are going to be around 250.

    well I paid around that sort of money for them so I'm quite happy. I imagine the price of them will go up sharply over the next few years though.
