    I thought it was a russian capture as alot of the ss units fought on the eastern front. The stamps are back towards the butt just behind where the sling goes through. I have seen photos of other k98's with ss stamps on, but obviously some people say they're fake and some don't. I didn't notice them when i bought it! Thanks for replying everyone.

    is rusian refurb a bad thing? i thought it would add tto the history since you know where it has been and what has happened to it.
    or is it just a point of vue thing?

    You have a J.P. Sauer and Sohn, K98 there, naturally made in 1940. The X above the serial number almost certainly reveals this was a Russian "capture". There is bad information floating out there on Russian captures. Some try to say they are all parts guns. This is untrue. If a Russian soldier shot and killed a German soldier, then picked the germans K98 up, there is no reason to rearsenal it. I have an all matching BYF "42" Russian capture. If the serial number of your gun matchs the barrel, ring and stock, the SS marks are a fake. If the serial doesn't match the stock, there is an outside chance you have a rifle that got a replacement SS stock. I'm with Andy, I like the idea of knowing the Russians captured my gun. It gives me more info than I have on my other rifles. So Andy, in my point of view, a Russian capture is definitley not a bad thing!

    Take care,

    Hi Jay
    thanks for that i think it ads somthig to the story as it were. i was tempted by the P38s that came on the market not so long back they had the same story and i thought they were nice but they seem to go for a little less than a stock German one
