It's obivously a RC, so there is no telling where the stock originated. It is the "correct" flat buttplate for an early rifle, but that's about all that's correct about it. Other than that it's not that bad looking for a RC. Other places have been selling nicer ones for $250-275.

No kidding

I picked up a 1940 42code K98 at a shop when I first moved up here to Renton. It has a mostly matching stock that is correct for the year. The Bolt is the proper WaA655 as well as most of the bits and pieces. I only paid $250.00 for. Maybe I really have something ;o)

Unless I am missing something, I cannot believe the prices they are charging for RC K98s in the "Collectors Corner" section of the site. $500?!? $1,000?!?

I pray that for some reason I am mistaken and that they are at least partially matching rifles.

"I don't think this gun would have a laminate stock in 1935."

When did laminated stocks show up? My 1939 "27" has a laminated stock with matching serial no.

I think a few can be found from 37 with more in 38 and by 39 they were common.
