1933 K98 DRP Banner
« on: June 16, 2018, 08:06:31 PM »
I was shown a 1933 dated K98 that had a stamping on the left side of the stock for the DRP or Deutsche Reichs Post. This is a 98% piece that seems completely original. It came into a local store this week from a family selling a deceased WW2 vets stuff. The little bit said about these rifles in "Backbone of the Wehrmacht" does not identify production numbers and alludes that these rifles were supplied to the SA and SS along with some number of Reichswehr and later Wehrmacht units.
The current owner wants about $2K for it and because the condition is so original and outstanding I'm tempted to pay it.\
Have any of the forum members more information regarding this variation and if so could you share your knowledge.
Thx,
Lyn
