    This is from one site, asking 3500, the other site with another SS marked K98 stops you saving pics, I will try and find the MP40 later

    Hi Ben, yes, this is the usual fantasy marking.

    Cheers, Ade.

    They're nearly as bad as the OLT markings on Tony Oliver's SS buckles

    But then they were never made to deceive........... not at the time anyway

    Another decent rig ruined

    If you have a LCD monitor,set your digital camera on macro and take a picture of the screen,the pics come out very good for me.

    my friend Tim has a Russian capture BNZ SS K98. it has a single rune on the floor plate and the SS depot number on the side of the receiver and the rifle still shoots great after all these years. i have heard of RC mausers coming into the us with the deaths head plus all the SS runes.

    Hi Ben
    This is the only genuine ( I think) picture of an SS marking I have on a weapon. Deaths head + runes. Real examples with the Totenkopf are very rare, this was probably assigned to a camp guard. Not the sort of thing you would want to be caught with
    JMB ; That is likely one of the lowest quality type fake tote head stamp found fraudulently applied to german WW2 arms I have encountered - especially where it has been applied on that P08.

    Beign a russki capture & rework the floorplate is sure not to be factory original from the rifle. The single rune on parts like that does not indicate SS. Where do you get "SS depot number" on the side of the receiver...that's a new take on such things to me .

    Hi Ben
    I don't think any of us know for sure what markings were put on what pieces, and when. Because the "cowboys" tried to make a few quid in the early days, no one believes anything any more. I would definitely never say never, more air on the side of caution "caveat Emptor"

    Would this K98 be with a certain UK dealer by any chance?
    JMB ; I have to disagree in that with regards to rifles there is a set of identifiable patterns of what markings , types and when that the SS zentral zeugamt applied to salvaged 98's. Also at what point new made rifles got zzA2 , zzA4 ,and single rune markings after they discontinued the totehead and commercial proofing of salvaged rifles.

    Appreciate the input, but on this instance, i must disagree, although I would usually agree with you, the skull looks very amateur, but i know the history of this weapon, 100% I know who owns it where it came from, and more importantly who owned it. the "most probably owned by a camp guard" is a most definite. I have also seen stuff engraved, stamped and scratched on objects, that you would shake your head at and say "no way" But we don't know for sure, and never will

    Merry Christmas oh, its gone, well Happy New Year!
