KAR 98K Rifle / Re: some of my K98ks

I should have read your K98k post before I posted an item under the "Mauser Rifle" section of the forum.  Please take a look at what I just asked this afternoon.  You probably have some great suggestions for me.  Thanks!

KAR 98K Rifle / Where should a person look to find an excellent K98k?
« on: January 12, 2014, 03:51:43 PM »
Where would someone look or who would one talk to in order to find an excellent, collectible K98k?  Specifically, if a person wanted to find an all-matching, not restored, collectible K98k manufactured in Germany in 1939, 1940, or 1941?  Manufacturing plants would include:
#42 (1939) Mauser Werke AG, Oberndorf
#147 (1939)  J. P. Sauer und Sohn
#27 (1939)  Erma
#243 (1939) Mauser Werke AG, Borsigwalde
----or their 2 or 3 letter manufacturers code if appropriate for 1940 and 1941

I haven't seen anything on,,,, etc. that quite fits the bill over the past year or so.  Oregon Guns had a fine one that I missed out on.  I have not seen anything like this at the Houston Gun Collectors Association shows in the past 2 years.  Law's book "Backbone of the Wehrmacht" has great photos of various collections including the Robert Jensen collection.

Any advice would be appreciated.
