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

Most matching rifles for sale are being sold by individuals, so you will have to check the Trader here , auction sites like and, 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.
