What I am looking for is a "nice" all matching K98 that is "reasonably" priced.
Aren't we all. ;)

What you are looking for (matching and reasonably priced) is highly sought-after and scarce, so there are no vendors who have a large inventory to choose from. This is the only vendor who might have what you are looking for http://www.simpsonltd.com/product_i...=9427&osCsid=ea951cbdb194681d9c54c0ee3e1d3d9a

Most matching rifles for sale are being sold by individuals, so you will have to check the Trader here http://forums.gunboards.com/forumdisplay.php?75-The-Trader-WTS-and-WTT-listing-board , auction sites like Gunbroker.com and auctionarms.com, and your local gun stores and pawn shops. Instead of an all-matching rifle you might want to start out with a mostly-matching rifle as they are more available and less expensive than an all-matching rifle. Also, a mostly-matching rifle is less likely to be faked. If you search through this forum you will find sad tales of members who bought "all-matching" rifles only to find that they had been faked-up with restamped "matching" numbers. If you are just starting out, it's safer to go with a bolt mismatch or other mostly matching rifle. If you come across an all-matching rifle you want to buy, post close-up pictures of the numbers and other markings so it can be evaluated for authenticity before you spend your hard-earned money.
