I assume the leather strap is for the passengers to hold onto as they bounced and swayed over the dirt roads.

Re: Something fishy in K98s

Hopefully forums like this one, will save some people from making the mistake of purchasing one. I would buy one for what it is, a Russian "Capture" minus all the fake stamps, at a fair market price, but that is it.

He was heavily involved with troop morale, he did several morale trips to the AOR to visit with them/us.

I tired every combo of words I could think of, and I came up empty with my google-fu. Interesting relic of days gone by that is for sure. I've never seen one before you posted these.
