Can anyone help me? I need to sell this gun. I know it is a Mod 98 Mauser. I have researched it a little on the internet. I know all the serial numbers match. I can take photos and send them if you would like to see.

This gun was given to me when i was 10. It was my fathers. My mother told me he brought it back from overseas. It was in my aunt's attic for 25 or 30 years. I have had it for over 30 myself. It is in very good shape. the only rust i can see is on the buttplate and it is not that bad.

I dont want to get ripped off. I have no idea the value of this gun. Would someone help me figure out how much i should ask for this gun?

Thanks,
Linnie

To be honest with you, the price quoted is pretty close, depending on both "markings" and condition the price could go from 200 up to maybe 500 at the outside for K98's i belive the markings are the big thing here. We have about four resident experts, (im not one) that could give you a pretty close quote. The point is that for that relativly small amount of money your selling off something that meant a great deal to your Dad, and even if your not crazy about it, think what it might mean to your kids one day.

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
