My friend just recently picked up his 1st k98. Its a 1940 243 code RC. He is thinking about trying to find all the parts to make it "numbers matching" which seems like a near impossible and pointless task.
Has anyone tried to do this? Anyone know of an RC that has had this done and what value it would have?
I think he is better off saving his money and buying an all match or bolt MM, probably be cheaper in the long run.

tell your friend to save his money. he wont be able to find the correct coded serialized parts, unless he has someone remark non matching parts. either way it would still be a Humped up K-98. Value would not be worth the effort and expense on his end.

To dream the impossible dream, this is his quest.

You are absolutely correct.
