The question you ask is very similar to the  below:
I have this car, VIN 123456789.  I need to know where to get a new engine. 
Ask a proper question and get a proper answer!!!

It is also possible that der fuhrer is still alive since no one has ever seen the body.
I read "pristine" as being "Original" and so my statement stands!  Also I have been collecting K98ks since long before the RCs became available and there has Never been an all matching "pristine" condition RC X marked rifle ever advertised!  They have ALL been reworked and are mismatched numbers.

You have a "Standard Model" rifle that has been badly butchered by the addition of a muzzle break!

There is no such thing as "a Russian capture rifle that is 100% matching with original stock and in pristine condition."

BBotW is a good general reference book with lots of usefull info - BUT it is also the worst book to push fake marked rifles and bad info of anything published on the subjekt (altho his sniper book is of the same quality)!!!  Several of the faked rifles belonged to a collector in Kansas. 
I wrote Law a 2 page typed letter after the first book came out listing errors/omissions and giving references on much of my comments.  I know that at least 2 other collectors did likewise.  I never got a reply and when the revised edition came out there was Not a single correction to the original edition - just some additional info.
There are much better referances available, 2 have just recently been published - Kriegsmodell and another by the same 2 authors with yet a 3rd volume to be printed. 
And I believe a bit of research will show that fake single rune marked rifles have come out of russia with the RC imports.

I have seen that before, usualy on the bottom of a receiver or on a bbl.  Not sure what it is, but pretty sure that it is Not an SS rune.  Among other reason is that bcd had nothing to do with the rifle production associated with the SS procurement of rifles. 
On the rune marked rifles, almost all bnz, the rune is about double the size of that one.

Well, a photo of the mark you are asking about would "probably" help to get an answer to your question! 
You don't show a photo of the complete rifle so have you also added a clg rod u. sight hood?
You have duplicated some of you photos which is a waste of time. 
Cleaning/maint of your rifle is just like any other rifle - Nothing special is required.

You have a DSM 34.  These were made by at least a half dozen mfgrs, but the Mauser is one of the most sought after.

You have a WW 1 Kar 98 - either an "a" or "b" Mod. 
These were in 8mm = 7.9 OR 7.92mm.

Looks like an FN Mod 30, which was in both 7mm & 8mm. 

KAR 98K Rifle / Re: Where should a person look to find an excellent K98k?
« on: January 12, 2014, 04:49:54 PM »
The only thing I can suggest is to look everywhere you can think of.  This would include local gun & hock shops, adds in the local paper, the internet, local gun shows and Shotgun News.
You can also run adds in local papers & SGN. 
As with any specifik gun or militaria item, a matching Exc cond K98k is just where you find it.  They are still out there, But getting harder to find all the time!  In addition they are getting terribly expensive!  A rifle that would have brought $300 15+ yrs ago will bring $2500 now.
