KAR 98K Rifle / Kar. 98 1913
« on: April 19, 2017, 01:28:38 PM »
Picked up a mislabeled Kar. 98 at a local gun shop.  They had it labeled as Belgian(Danzig in Belgium?).  Anyway, I foolishly sold most of my WWI collection when Clinton was elected and have since moved on.  So, I thought I could make a few bucks and plan to sell it.  Any body around who knows what it is worth?  Condition:  little blue left, lots off dents and nicks, perfect bore, mismatched bolt and front band.  Cool stuff:  five tally notches on the comb of the stock, the stock also has a scraped out area where the stahlhelm(sic?) rubbed it, ( My 1914 Enfield has the same scrape). and infantry swivels screwed on.  I bet it looks exactly as it did when it left the trenches.  The thing makes one's hair stand on end when handling it.   The owners widow sold a large collection to the gun store, and I suspect got royally S*******d.  I wish I knew it's story.  I'm a retired historian by trade, and wish people would leave the story under the butt plate like some Swiss do with their rifles.  any way, any help would be appreciated.  Thanks
