Someone wanted that stock bad. The vz24 band holding the bayo lug is kind of neat.
The stock and rear band are worth a pretty good chunk of the price. It's not really all that crazy. Now the guy in the trader selling KM stocks for 2 grand is crazy.I mean, if that is a kriegsmodell stock, the ones without a bayonet lug normally but maybe one barely sitting on that one, someone may thought it was worth a little more to get at some parts they needed.
I sold a rc full km stock for 400 shipped 2 years ago on the trader here. They haven't got any cheaper. The bolt is 150, barreled receiver at least 150. Late war unnumbered resto parts can bring some dough.All I see is a beat up $350.00 (at best) RC, the two Guy's who bid this up are Fools. The Rifle had nothing to do with the Luftwaffe.
Jumping out of an airplane! lol I wonder if it was a Ju88 or a He111.
Bands? The stock is what they were after. I suspect we could see this stock paired with a bringback action. Of course the russian serial number will be steamed out and finish blended in.Milsurp,
I highly doubt the two (more money than Brains) bidders who were bidding up the rifle had a Kriges Rifle sitting around waiting for some bands, but I guess we will never know. That's allot of money to spend for some bands however if it were me needing those Kriges bands I would swap in others and just re-sell that rifle.
No way would I ever pay $800.00 for it, bore looks frosted/ pitted up receiver to boot.
