You will get some arguements on this... but I would it between 500 - 550 depending on the condition of the stock, bore, completness and the severity of the pitting. Some auctions as of late have gone as high as 800 for VG condition non matching examples.

Put her up on the trader board and see. Perhaps you will find a taker.

M98/40

I just bought one, all matching and better than 90% blue from a gun club friend. I have only seen very few of these in the colecting world, I paid 900.00 which is definitly high end, but I feel it will appreciate in the near future RETREAD

98/40's are few and far between. Could go as high as $1500.00 for a mint example. Yours I would say between $500.00 to $700.00.
