Can't give you much help, other than the fact that Israel used anything they could get their hands on to begin with, including WW II Nazi marked 98s. In 8mm Mauser. Later they either got or made more in 7.62mm NATO.

Don't know details, but pretty sure this was the case.

I won't claim to understand today hi-dollar prices for old junk. Everything is not a collectable, even if the seller thinks it is. $500 for Mauser with a cracked stock? I value $500 more than that...but then, I'm old, and remember Mauser 98s, intact for $40, so $500 for any of them seems too much to me.
