I would like to get some additional opinions on this gewehr 98. It is made by DWM in Berlin in 1916. Butt plate, barrel, receiver, mag plate, stock all match. No import marks. Seller is asking $950. Wanting to pull the trigger but the pitting on the barrel bothers me. Bolt and magazine plate dont seem to match.

It is all matching… My impression is that the stock has been cleaned- remnants of the cartouches appear to be there. Metal finish looks to be in good shape?
As Ive learned in my search- the unfortunate reality is that prices have gone up for these matching examples- turk’d examples seem to be fairly stable at the $6-$700 range. Watching those Lock Stock and Barrel auctions- make me think $1200 is a great deal! Ha!

What constitutes a (Turk'ed) example? ....anything besides a crescent moon on the receiver?
Crescent yes. Also… If the rifle has a turkey import mark- in my mind that is a turk rifle. Not Turkish made but in Turkish service. I believe most 1917 Oberndorf 98’s went to Turkey. Mine did but didnt have turkish markings

Bore pics from the first example- despite the pitting on the outside, inside doesnt look that bad. Plenty bright and strong grooves. Looks like maybe one visible pit
