K98k Mausers
« on: January 31, 2021, 05:45:28 pm »
My K98k Mausers, nothing rare or super special. There are some collectors out there that stay away from captured rifles, but I really enjoy them! In my opinion the K98 is one of the best Milsurp rifles!

- bcd 43 Russian Captured

    Thank you! The collection has grown smaller over the years, I've done some downsizing.

    Why would people stay away from Captured Rifles?  That's just part of the history.  Does it cast some magical voodoo hex on the action or something?
    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we, as a society, lose that affinity, we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    Some collectors want an un-touch, all numbers matching rifle. Captured rifles were sometimes scrubbed of their markings and refurbished. The Russians would ping out German markings on the rifle as well.

    I agree with you, it's a part of the history. I enjoy having captured items!  :thumbup

    I have a friend that's Jewish and a huge firearms collector.  His favorite guns are the WWII German issued guns with Nazi Markings that were captured and reissued by Israel with Jewish Markings.

    The Israeli K98s are nice. I like to collect bayonets and would like to have a K98 bayonet with the Israeli markings on it. You don't see those around too often.

    Attached is an article on the history about Israeli K98 rifles.

    Thanks!

    The value on SKS rifles has increased a lot lately. I use to have a Yugoslavian SKS with the grenade launcher attached. If I was going to have a SKS again I'd like to have a Russian one.

    Looked around the internets and don't see any Israeli K98ks for sale.  :wtf

    Here is my swp45 marked Israeli (7.62) with Mk. 1A bayonet.  :-)

    Would you happen to have any photos of the bayonet and the markings on it? Looks like a German K98 bayonet.

    That is a really nice bayonet and one that is not easy to find. Thank you for uploading a photo of it! Those are German K98 bayonets that Israel acquired after World War 2. The crosspiece was replaced by the Israelis which has the muzzle ring.

    Attached is a link that also shows a Mk. 1A bayonet.
