So I've been searching the web and have noticed that nobody has the straight answer on these SS marked K98's and what rifles would the SS have used. As far as I remember reading is that the SS needed every rifle they could get, so they didn't mark every rifle they had in their units. Which makes total sense to me.
So for the final record... Who knows what the Truth is?
I see places like... ( Pain in face) Mitchell's Mausers trying to sell SS rifles to the unknowing buyer... and we all know what they are up too.
German K98 Mauser Rifle by Mitchell's Mausers
For the record.. I know Mitchell's are bad... I was just making a point about how easy it is for people to get burned over these rifles.
