My rifle was shipped Tuesday and arrived today (Thursday) I am impressed. I've always wanted a BSW coded K98 and saw this one on GB, to my surprise I was the only bidder so I got it for the opening bid. The metal is in nice shape with no Russian X stamped on it. And this is probably the nicest stock I've seen on a RC. I'm still going to strip the stock and I'll post photos when it's done, this one will turn out nice. The guys at On Target were great to deal with and I look forward to doing so again.
