    Check internet sites that auction guns, I'm sure your will find something to suit your budget.

    For me, Russian capture reworked(RC) rifle is still better than the crap from Mitchells.

    If you are lucky, you might even get RC with the original nazi eagles and proof marks still intact.

    These days, for a totally genuine and untouched, all matching K98, you could easilly pay $2000+. (I've seen genuine, in excellent condition K98 rifle slings go for $100+)

    Amazing, what a few war movies achieve.

    My WW2 German K98 was re barrelled by the Israelis to 7.62 x 51, and is simply the most accurate rifle I ever owned, bar none.

    I'm sure the NATO ammo is easier to find where you are? Don't know but it is here. The 8mm surplus has dried up but there's still some NATO. Sounds like you have a keeper:)

    I've really loved my two yugo's, an M-48 & M-48A. They are numbers matching in super shape & I paid $99 ea for them. I bought 'em last year from the local pawn shop that stocks lots of milsurp rifles.

    Cheers

    I got my K98 Erfurt from Woolco. Wish I had gotten more. The gun department was a treasure trove, M1 carbines, 1903A3s, Swiss rifles, Mausers, Arisakas, Enfields. Sigh.

    I love mine. I picked it up years ago from a collecter and it was well worth the money.
