DoctorXring, sweet looking k98, especially when you add in the extra "neat" factor of it being Isreali. Where'd you get it? I really dont need a second k98, but I would pick one of those up just for the neatness and irony of it being an Isreali version of a gun well know for being used by the nazis in WWII. I can seriously kinda smell the irony, and hear the slap in the nazi's face, from here. That and the crest is very cool looking, and I dont have any Isreali guns in my collection, so that hole will need to be filled eventually, and I suspect I'll never be able to fill it with an UZI like I would REALLY like too.

Israeli K98 Service Rifle

jrfoxx --

Thanks. I was lucky on this one. A gunsmith sold this to me a few
years ago. He had picked it up cheap and was going to break the
rifle down for a sporter. He said the rifle was so nice he couldn't
bear to do it and put it up for sale, hoping a collector would find it.
That was my lucky day.

There were, as I understand, a number of these new condition K98
rebuilds brought in I think in the 90's. One pops up now and then.
I have two of them. The other is built on an FN action. I have two
other used ones that are built on German WWII actions. Yes, they are
definitely full of irony. They are also good shooters. This target
is from one of my WWII action guns.

The condition of these rifles ranges from total beaters with sewer or
shot out bores to these like new guns. Pay the premium for a nice one.
This is a solid collectible with a excellent future.

My checklist for an Israeli K98 is:

1. Excellent bore
2. German action desired, but not necessary
3. Numbers matching on receiver and bolt
4. 7.62 number burned into bottom of stock a plus, but
they all don't have that.
5. Star of David stamp on receiver highly desired

Just got my C&R app. I'd love to see some pics of your collections. I'll start with my Tannerite blaster.
My Yugo 24/47 8mm Mauser. My next will be an M1 carbine. Then ????

The top one is a DA, .22LR 7-shot revolver made by US Revolver Co (aka Iver Johnson) sometime around 1910-1920, I'm guessing. It loves Aguila Super Maximums and works perfectly. It is tiny, tiny, tiny & looks much better in real life than in the picture.

AC-42 P-38 and Army Victory. The Victory I got from the estate of a doctor who served in the Pacific in WW2. A pilot gave it to him for protection from the still-lurking Japanese and the doctor brought it home after the war and kept it in the house for protection. We all knew he had it from his stories, but no one had seen it or knew where it was. When the family found it after the funeral, it still contained five rounds of unfired WW2-dated ammunition.

How do you guys get your pictures taken so up close? I try and it just turns out fuzzy. I have a pretty decent camera that I just got for Christmas.

Most camera lenses won't let you get clear results form more than 4 or 5 feet away, so the trick is to stand back at least that far and use the zoom for closer shots.

My Mosin Nagant M44. There's nothing special about it other than the fact that it cost me a whopping $80 (with matching serial numbers).
