Hey all, Just thought I'd share my K98. It was produced at the DOU factory (Waffenwerke Brunn, Bystrica in German occupied Czechoslovakia) in 1944. It's numbers matching with proper markings, however at some point, the stock was replaced being that it has a stock marking on it that was not used at the DOU factory (German eagle with an H for Heer). The stock is an original though produced in 1944 as well. Maybe the soldier it was issued to replaced it? The vet who brought it back maybe repaired it? Hard to tell... I just shot it a couple of weekends ago and she fired like a dream! Has a nice kick to it too ;-) I also have an original 41 AVG bayonet to go along with it.
