    Default My New K98

    A very good friend of mine gave me this K98 last week. It is a byf 43. When he gave it to me it had a scope mounted in the rear site base. I removed that scope and I am now waiting for him to locate the scope box because it has the original spring, pin and site bar that was removed to mount the scope. All numbers seem to match except the bolt. The bolt is matching to itself but not the rifle. The cleaning rod is broken. The bore is mint.

    My buddy put a Post War Yugo Sling on it. I may look for an original sling and a mint K98 Bayonet.

    My friend is 64 years old and he got this rifle from a vet back in his 20s. It was a bring back by the vet.

    Here it is:

    Really nice example you have there. Nice that they did not drill and tap for the scope.

    My buddy just gave me the original matching site bar and spring today. I will try to get them mounted and add a pic or 2.

    If you like K98K Mausers here is one that I just picked up and sold. It is an 1937 S/147 all matching and nobody sanded the stock. The buyer wanted as is. He told me not to clean it.
