the guy was asking $289 and so i snagged it up. i know a little bit about it as i've been doing research online for about a week. it's got WaA80 stamped above the mod. 98 and the letter "e" under the serial number. i also know that it was made by waffen works bystrica. i'll throw some pics up and i'd appreciate any info/feedback.

btw, it was a Russian Capture and i gently removed the shallac without messing up the wood (citristrip and some rags). i know that it's not the proper stock also. i'm looking for a semi-kriegsmodell stock (with the bolt disassembly but using the bands that use screws and no cleaning rod or bayonet piece).

here are some pics with the cleaned up stock. nothing was lost/removed other than the shallac and there was no sanding done.

ClintJohnson- haha, i am a jayhawk fan for sure, but i have respect for ou and osu - i'm not a hater. if you have parts that you'd be willing to part with to help me complete my set, i would be more than willing to pay you for the help/trouble.

Nice looking gun. I have a 45 DOU and have been looking for other 45 codes for quite awhile (no luck).

Dennis at Empire Arms had some (RC45's) about a year ago and was selling them for over $400. at that time. In the world of the RC the early S codes and the 45's (any code) are the ones that generally will be marked up.

You can check out my dou.45 restoral project, http://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?163735-My-RC-dou.45-Full-Kriegsmodell-Project. I encourage you to stick with it 'cause the payoff when you have it mostly complete is fantastic. While it'll never be original since the ruskies messed with it it'll still be representative of a very rare 98k configuration. I'd also encourage you to get a copy of the newest and most complete study of late war the 98k, Kriegsmodell , just published by two of our board members. It is a fantastic study of this 98k variation and the best resource you'll find to complete the project you've undertaken. You'll save the cost of this book in finding and purchasing the correct parts for a dou.45 98k. Since your rifle is a "e" block it'll probably have a phosphated finish under the russian bluing. I think most all the e & f block rifles were phosphated instead of blued at the factory. My project rifle is sn 9393 e and appears to never have left the factory, the bore is mirror bright and it never got the final acceptance Wa A80 stamp above the Mod 98 on the top side of the receiver. What stampings do you have on the underside of the barrel ahead of the receiver? These are some interesting marks as well as what is visible with the rifle in the stock.

Good luck, this is the best website to find the information and sources for your project and the parts you'll need.
