    These WWII collector pieces are in good to very good condition. Sure to increase in value! Nice clean rifles with NAZI marked codes on receiver ring. These are historic K98 rifles and every collector must own one !!


    REG: $179.95
    RETAIL: $375.00
    #SLG-WWIIK98
    C&R
    CALIFORNIA-OK
    Handpick: Add $10.00

    A really good GI bring-back unmarked by an importer will certainly command a much higher value than a recent import rifle. You might check on Jouster.com or Gunboards.com (both have Mauser forums) and see what the exspurts have to say.
    Besides some real monetary value, this rifle has serious sentimental/family value.
    There are so many factors in the military Mausers that it'll take a truly knowledgable collector to pin down a good monetary value.

    arsenal 42 means it was made in orbendorf germany. ive seen k98s with all matching numbers go for 700-800 dollars but you should listen to big dog and go to those websites if you want a more accurate price.
