An End of the War Styer k98k question

Post by indy1919a4 »

So I read this on another gun web site.. Does anyone know about this rifle??

At the end of WWII Styer of Austria changed the K98k code from BNZ to a new lettering.

There are only 6 known to exist as this was literally the last week of the war they did this so few were made and the only one I ever saw online sold for $20K

The last k98k marked by Steyr that I know of was "bnz 45" in one line across the receiver ring.
