Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Looking for input on the general current going price for russian capture K98k rifles today. Thinking of selling, no idea where to start.

There is one that was at the local gun shop @ $500, overpriced IMHO. Price had been dropped from $650. It is gone now and I do not know what it sold for. i sold one in the same shop a couple of years ago for $425 and I was surprised it sold at that.

I just picked up a decent CE 44 for under $400. Great bore but Ivan went crazy with the electric pencil and scrubbing of serial numbers. But it will clean up into a great shooter.

This one is a BNZ 44. In wonderful condition and just as the Russians left it but for the shellac. And I added a repro sling from atthefront.com. Milled bands and trigger guard, after market cleaning rod, original front sight hood. And it shoots nicely, though I can barely make out the sights anymore.

Even though it is a RC gun, different codes and dates will bring a premium. BNZ is desirable and depending on condition of bore and "looks" of the gun $600 now days is not out of line if really nice.

After reading about all the fakes being "made" in eastern Europe I'd be afraid of getting took in today's market. When the RC's we're plentiful not too long back we were all not paying much attention to whether or not what you were buying was altered. I don't think it was going on to the degree it is now. It's sad there's so many crooks in the world.

The days of $175 RC's are long gone.
Surplus ammo is scarce, but the demand for the rifle is still up there.

I think if you put it up on here for $400 someone may bite.
It may fetch up to $500+ on GB.

I'm not a fan of RC Mausers, but prices have crept up. Most seem to sell around $350-400. Rare codes maybe $600. However a lot sit unsold at $600.

An RC was in the crucible and the mixing of parts is the validation of its history.

I love my RC. It shoots good. My all matching bring back is loved too, but I don't shoot it much at all.

at least the RC,S are the real deal. they were used in RUSSIA by the GERMAN soldier and and were either captured or picked up on the field of battle. not found in a warehouse in GERMANY after the war.

I thought some of the RC's were also recovered/removed from the factories, IE not all were battlefield recovered or troop surrendered weapons.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong on this assumption.

point taken. i am inclined to agree with you. if they were in a factory, not many were be cause they were using foreign countries weapons- such as a lot of ITALIAN ones, but if any were still left in a where house they certainly have captured them.

When the Mauser plant was captured there were literally thousands and thousands of 98k rifles stacked like cord wood waiting to be delivered. But the problem was there were no trucks left to deliver them to the depots, so they kept making them and stacking them.
