I have complete rc k98 mauser action in good shape except the barrel is bad - I am looking for ideas as to what I should sell it for. Its complete except the front sight hood is gone. Its a Russian capture with the waffen visible and I believe its matching numbers. amy ideas greatly appreciated.

$400 max. With bad bore, probably less.

If it's a Russian capture the numbers definitely don't match. I'm may have some matching parts others will be electro-penciled to force match. A barreled action with bolt with a bad barrel is only worth at most $150 to 250 depending on the markings.

$200-$250ish ,what makes the barrel bad? Does it look dad, or shoot bad? I've seen some that looked pretty dark and rough, but they still shot pretty good.

If someone wants it for as make up for a sporting/hunting rifle, the #'s don't mean squat..
$150-$250

I say somewhere around the neighbourhood of $250, if the pipe is gone. Pics help of course.

Define bad, looks bad, shoots bad, or both?
Whats the receiver ring code and date?

shoots bad can't shoot a 18 inch group at 50 yards - all over the paper - shooting from sandbag rest - had the barrel crowned but that didn't help- thanks for the info guys - luckily my gunsmith found another k98 that had been bubba'ed into a "sporter" but the barrel not cut down - so he's mounted it on my stock - hoping for the best - of course had to dros it as a "new" gun. i'll try to put up pix soon and check the markings

Somehow I missed the word "Action" in this last time I looked. Considering Rguns sells them for $200, I would say your known bad barrel would be below that.
