Any of those old 98s dated 1942 and earlier are as pretty-much as good as anything made today, and better than most.
My gunsmithing uncle worked on many of those in the late 1940s and into the 1960s. His own pet was a "Varminter", fore-runner of the Rem. .22-250, with a Gebby barrel on a 98 action. Half-MOA tack-driver.
