Thanks HB. What does MM mean?hello,
It's a horizontal script ce 41 (JP Sauer) with a renumbered bolt. At that price you didn't get hurt, particularly if it's a mm bolt only that someone jacked the bolt on. If nothing else is boinkered on it, and the bolt is mm only, it's worth twice that.
Looks like just some...bolt for sure....maybe barrel band.Are you saying that the "6"s are fakes? (or that some of them are fakes)
Experience is the best way. Sorry no easy answer for this one. Suggest you purchase one of Bob In Ohio's CD's (He's a member here)....lots of GREAT pictures of known correct examples....study the pics & data.How can I tell the difference between a ground bolt and an original?
If this is a "faker" is that a common thing I'll be running across?
YesThe stock should have the same # as the receiver if it's a complete original correct?
Does the fact that there are no import marks mean anything for its value?
It will go up, but MUCH slower than an un "restored/reblued" rifleDoes the value of this type of gun go up or is it merely a shooter?
What book would you recommend I get to start my formal K98 schooling?
