    They have had some milsurp a this week and their prices are pretty much outrageous. The crazy thing is, they will probably sell the damn things. This MUST be new buyers with deep pockets that don't know the standard pricing of these things. Why buy an original nazi K98 when you could by a Czech version for even more!

    $800 for an Israeli capture K98 with a cracked stock....ugh.

    Love it. Some of them are basically Russian captures. They actually don't look nice at all, but hey, whatever. They will sell them off quick too.

    If I'm paying anywhere near $1000 K98, it's not some. Bastardized Czech version. It better be a non RC German in great condition with an original finish stock

    Limited supply and no 'new' ones coming in... Should have bought one 10 years back when they were selling them like Mosins.

    I'd say the market is doing just what I would expect.

    Its classic, what did you expect? They are overpriced on almost anything nowadays, every so often they have ok prices on a few things but they over hype what they sell
