Need help Identifying my K-98
I have just purchased a k-98. Paid the equivelant of 270 USD for it. Wood is a bit rough. It was purchased here in Switzerland. Regarding the markings, It has what appears to be the Imperial Eagle stamp (Pre Nazi regime I guess) Also, the Waffenamt stamp appears to be the Bavarian state stamp?? There does not appear to be a year or mfg. code as I have seen in many pictures of other k-98s. The numbers match on bolt, butt, and receiver. There is a consistent stamp on just about every part of the rifle. It appears to be an M. There is also a V in several areas.
If anyone can advise on what the stamps indicate and how to ID the year of Mfg. on this and where it was made, I would VERY much appreciate it.
