I picked this up a while back. Excellent condition and a great shooter.

Thanks. I do better with scoped rifles but I'm a purist and want to keep most of my milsurps original. :acute:

Nice.

I've always wanted a scoped K98 and Mosin 91/30. I do much better with scopes too these days.

My scoped K98K isn't a real sniper. I bought an Iron Elite cantilever scope mount when they were being produced. It doesn't look terrible, it doesn't ruin the value, and it does hold zero. I put 60's & 70's blued steel weaver 9x scopes on my milsurps. Got one on my 03A3 with an S&K no drill/tap mount that I painted to look parkerized. The 03A3 will shoot sub MOA. The K98 shoots 1.5-2" with 70's Yugo and under 3 with 50's Yugo surplus.

I watched a sniper documentary on the history channel about 10 years ago where they said "optically scoped Mauser rifles could put an 8mm slug in an enemy half a mile away". Since seeing that I wanted to shoot at that distance but haven't found a place with 880 yards of open range.

I don't think it's been refinished. The stampings in the wood are crisp and unsanded.

You need to come up north a bit - several opportunities up here for that.

Very nice. CMP? I wanted to pick one up when they had them a couple years ago, but the money just wasn't there. I did pick up an 03, a SC 03A3, an IBM carbine, and a 6-digit SA Garand with lockbars.
