Prices are really nuts. An RC K98k I see at $500-650. On Turk modified mausers I see $200-300. K98k Bring backs- matching, but mismatched bolt that matches itself I see $900-1200. On hobbled-together odd balls, the average beat to death K98 parts dogs I have seen $400-500. Real nice K98ks seem to be over $1300+ starting at more like $1500, heck a stock is $250-350, the bolt $100-140, the sling $100-275 an original cleaning rod $50-90. Lately, I have not seen too many intact RC mausers. There are more Yugo mausers than German bring backs lacking import marks. And those Yugo capture K98ks also seem to be around $500-600. This is WI gun show prices. I's rare to see walk in K98k bring backs, although all shows have high priced examples. There are few RC Russian intact examples-- most have been messed with to look more German for reenacting. I have not seen a Balkins K98 or Yugo capture or French capture in a few years. I have yet to find a 30-06 Norwegian capture K98k example at a WI show.
So you can think about the $500-600 price range for a dog.
Those K98ks really hold their value. I did get a Yugo m24 Mauser at the last show , but it was just stupid luck and the guy selling it was also a Jarhead and gave an old vet a price break. seeviewtopic.php?f=38&t=147542&hilit=+m24+mauser
