    I sold a RC K98 a while back and I loved it. I have the opportunity to purchase this exact K98 from the Karabiner 98 book written by a prominent member of the K98 message board. He wants $950 shipped. It’s not a Russian capture, is a wartime rework, not a postwar rework.

    I k ow all of you will say “get it!” So I don’t know why I ask but I will anyway.

    That's steep. Not sure that being in a book warrants that sort of price increase

    That's pretty close to the price of a matching rifle. I would pass on it.

    If you have a grand laying around burning a hole there is definitely worst ways to spend it. IMO theres a lot cooler milsurps out there for that kind of money but if that 98 holds a special place then snatch er up cause were not promised tomorrow so you might as well enjoy it while your here. Just a flunkie's 2 cents
