Hi

not many markings only the ones you see! No cleaning rod no hole in the wood for one nice blueing post war?

Looks to be a great shooter tho , markings dont mean much to me if it does not shoot straight. Not into safe queens myself i like to fire my weapons , i would scope it and get some ammo.
Cant hurt it. Any mauser shoots straight is a great find to me its a mauser.

The gun has little collector value, if any!
The rifle is an unsporterized K98k. It has collector value, more than an RC but less than a better example. I would like to see the firing proof on the receiver and barrel. It just might be worth more than we think.

mil-surpshooter64 is a military surplus rifle shooter, not a collector. There is a forum for them, Surplus Rifle Forum - for shooters and collectors. They have no problem drilling receivers. This is Gunboards - for collectors by collectors.

Regards,
Bill

Agree, agree, agree, especially with the statement "This is Gunboards - for collectors by collectors." Drilling would be foolish.

I especially like the British proofs, to me they add a lot of interest showing that the rifle was in Britain post-WW2 and was intended for use by the new owner there.

And you sir i do not even know how would you know what i have and do not have ?, i have collecter rifles as well they still go to range and get used. I have never said word 1 to you so you do not know anything about me so i would appreciate if you would not bring me up in your posts since you know nothing about me .
He's a man that knows his Mauser so much so that he could write books on them. So I'm pretty sure he's pretty good at assessing who is and isn't a collector by the comments they make...... like turning a $400 K98 into $200 by drilling and tapping it for a hunting scope....

Sorry Junge, a little too much off subject discussion going on, I have to close this or we'll be here listening to "I'm being picked on" from now to kingdom come.
