My flavor changes over time. At one time byf45 was my favorite, then svw45, then dou45, then swp45. It all depends on what I am chasing?

I guess right now my favorite is bcd4, only because you find guns from all of the makers with that code ;)

I'm partial to ar41

It was my first. And even though it was "frenched" I still like it.

my others are:

Amberg 1917
660 1940
duv42
dou43
byf43
byf44

I would like to add a 1939 dated rifle to the herd eventually.

I also bounce around based on current interest. I have always liked the late dou and dot/swp45 guns, my current interest is byf45. In fact, byf in general. Funny how that works. A bcd45 has been on my list forever. I have never had one, I've had most other post-44 code/dates, to include a few tough ones. Of course, the bcd45 would have to be a LSR sniper. Any late snipers are of particular interest.

Favorite 98k

Hi Guys:
I like the early ones with the walnut stocks, particularly "K"
dates. I have a non-RC S/42K but it's mismatched. I also need
a 1938 and 1939, they I'll have one for every year they were
made. It would also be nice if the 38 or 39 were Kreigsmarine
marked.
Tks,
Bob32268

1945 Dated K98k Rifles Any Code

I have owned a bnz45, dou45, and swp45. When I get the cash together I would like to own all the 1945 codes including the questionable svw/MB, as well as the Czech. dot45.

Any code is cool but when you find one in better condition than what you already have and is affordable that automatically becomes the favorite, but bSw is mine.

I like how he asks what your "favorite" is and many, to include himself ... lists several. Does not "what is your favorite" indicate .. a single answer?? Just an observation

Hello,

My favorite K98 is code/year ar41. It was my 2nd K98 and was totally matching. I would buy another one in a jiffy!

Regards.

Unusual 98k

This IDF 98k has to be the most interesting I've come across. It's been through at least 4 rebuilds as a Gew98, 98b, German 98k & IDF 308 98k
