i was at that Big 5 looking at shooting stands. i always scan the mil surp rack. they had a K 98 . i am taped out and am not looking for a rifle . [ i still owe 750 on my M1a]. i did not ask for them to take it down so i could look at it. the stock was very beat up. i bought a mauser M 48 their but i never saw a K 98 st big 5. sorry i do not remember the price. 3 something.

How much did they want for it?

i could not see the price tag, i think 350-375. if the wood looked better i would have looked closer.

if it's a REAL k98 it might be worth something but who knows, probably just an m48. if not, might be a hammered RC k98. if it was 150 i'd be running out to buy it but 350+ for a hammered k98 just doesn't really grab me. on the other hand, i may run out and look at it if work slows down this week, lol.

Do you remember if it had a long or short hand guard? Thanks for the heads up!

it for sure had a short hand guard, not like my M 48 long hand guard.
