Plastic K98k Stock

The experimental K98k plastic stock was produced by Mauser Borsigwalde, and is seen on rifles coded S/243 and 243. In BBOTW Law states they were produced in 1940, but legitimate examples have been seen on S/243 1937 K98k rifles. The plastic stocks are manufactured of a hollow fabric base and then laminated with ureaformaldehyde plastic. They are then molded to shape and covered with lacquer. They are very rare and worth big dollars. But some have reproduced them after the war. I would imagine your friend has a postwar reproduction, because only a handfull of real ones exist in the United States.

Offer him $50, then you can't lose even if it's fake.
If it's not, you just won a used late model Camry...

I would go after all the OTHER k98 (wood) stocks as they are a known commodity and VERY sellable.
