View Full Version : K98 Russian capture prices

January 31, 2010, 12:23 PM
Florida Gun Works has 'em at $399 with un-peened waffenamts and bores listed as "very good" (whatever that means to them). Does anyone have any experience with them? Does this sound like a reasonable price?

I seemed to get the impression that RCs are going for less than that but perhaps that's for pretty crudgy examples with peened markings?

Thanks for any feedback you can provide.

A year or so ago you could get 'em for $300 or so just about anywhere. They are getting scarce and the best are gone. Unless Belarus or Russia open up their war reserves like the Ukraine, not going to see a lot more of them soon.

For $400, I'd like to visit there and take my pick, but if you get a really good one, get two.

Thanks Kili. They have a hand picked option for $15 that's probably worth it.

A budy of mine just ordered one and I'll get some feedback from him before I do the same.
