If numbers don't match, that probably means it's a Russian Capture. RC rifles tend to run in the $250 to $350 range, from what I've seen.

The ONLY German Kar98k I have ever seen with matching numbers sold for over $1500. I have never personally seen once since.

Nice RC's bring $400./$450. here in Ca., matching #'s - the sky's the limit it seems, one just sold on GB for $3400.+

#'s and rarity mean everything.

There are way too many variations on the K98 to estimate the value without a lot more information. Big 5 sold VZ 24's (One of the best K98's) that were matching number good looking guns for 150 or so a few years ago. Thousands were brought in from the eastern block when the wall came down, Israel sold thousands that they had kept in reserve.......They come on the market in waves so the prices do the same thing. Pre-war manufacture used to be the gold standard but as collectors some of the poorly built later guns have come up because of there history.

$250-300 is a fair price range.

I just sold my German k-98 Russian Capture to a fellow Calgunner, with nazi eagles INTACT, for $300, exactly what I paid for it 4 years ago.

A vz-24 is NOT a k98. They are both mausers, yes, but they are different.

Correct, thats why we have to assume, the original poster is asking about a K-98...that is a German Mauser as they named it the K-98. Vz-24, M-48's, Turkish Mausers, are all just what they are, VARATIONS of the K-98 manufactured after the same German design, but none of those that I know of, other than the original German Mauser Model 98k, hold the name Model 98k.
I just sold my nice Vz-24 with bayonet for $200 to a fellow calgunner.
Mausers are cool, but just not my thing anymore.

A vz-24 is NOT a k98. They are both mausers, yes, but they are different.

actually, K98 and 98K(even K98k) are commonly interchanged in reference to the German-Specific Mauser Model 98 action

"Turkish Mauser" is also a broad descriptor for the 4 different models of mausers adopted into use, only one of which is a 98-based action

Correct......Ref, Kuhnhausen and de Haas. and Most Turks were small ring actions. 2 lug, cock on closing, M1893 design. Very different. A Specific Kar98 has a different barrel-action ring dimension. "small ring, large thread= thin receiver wall"
