I have seen an ordinary Soviet capture k98 mauser priced at $550 at a gunshow, what's worse is that I witnessed the sale of same rifle for that price.Went to a gunshow in Ontario yesterday. Saw a typical RC S/243 1937 with a lovely complete "X" stamped on the top. Shellac with black paint on the disks. Cupped blued buttplate. Typical rough/matte blueing job.
Price? A whopping $550.
I was tempted to ask if the bore was gold plated 24K. LOL
So what's the most outrageous RC price you've seen at gunshows or at gunshops?
I think for $550 this was the most insane RC price I've seen for non SS RC K98s.
