Greetings,

What would be a fair price for an original GEW 98 with the Lange sight?
I'm looking for a good shooter, so am not concerned about all matching numbers.

TIA

"Mostly matching" ones in excellent condition that have an original appearance seem to start at about $700. Lesser condition, total mixmasters in mechanically good condition could start at $200. to $300. Occasionally one sees a very nice Cz M98/22 rifle equipped with the Lange rear sight for about $175. to $275. That is virtually the same rifle and would possibly be in better overall condition for the same money that you would pay for a low-end GEW 98. Buy the best bore you can find. DDR

I made the mistake of buying this Amberg Gewehr 98. Rear sight matched the barrel and receiver. Front and rear bands matched each other. Bolt was a replacement. Rear swivel was a crude replacement. Cleaning rod SN did not match receiver. Stock is solid with tiger stripes.

Hello all. I recently bought a Gewer 98 Oberndorf 1916 for $570. It was my second C+R purchase! It's almost all matching except for one or two parts.
