I recently came across this has the armory number on the stock all matching numbers cleaning rod original screws out no cracks in the wood no pitting. What would this be considered pricewise seems for my research. It’s really rare and this things like it was in a safe forever.

    pictures would be helpful. As it's hard to put a price with out them. Could run from low end of 300.00 to 3000.00

    Most likely priced from 2K to 2500 for all matching. Check the barrel as they used corrosive ammunition and most likely you'll see a dark frosty or pitted barrel and that would affect value. Does it have a walnut stock or is it laminated? Does it have a sling, does it have a bent bolt (most likely) and the wood is cupped underneath or is the bolt straight? This is why we are reluctant to put a value on an old military rifle without more information.

    I just inherited this. it’s in unbelievable condition has the armory number on the stock. I’ve been getting a lot of different opinions about the price from what I see. It’s pretty rare. Could you guys give me an idea of the value?

    The thing that I am leery off is the stock serial where it looks like the area has been lightly rubbed down and number put there. I have had several k-98s and the Russian captures had that. Sling looks good. Someone with more knowledge will come along, more than me.

    The 98k's I have do not have numbers on the stock. only on the wood under the barrel. Any serial numbers there?

    Any Proof marks behind the grip on the bottom of the stock? If so those marks will date the stock

    Very nice looking rifle. Being that its a 1935 it started out as an Imperal Mauser. Then rebuilt into k98 style in 42. The flat butt plate is one give away. The renumber mark on butt area is different than the rest of the stock. No matter what it's still a matching number reciever bolt barrel parts mauser. Bottom price 1000.00 goes up from there.
