It was about 4" low at 1st, so I adjusted the turret. You really can't get any simpler w/ a scope. Trigger is excellent.

Built it. One of my neighbors happens to be one of the biggest collectors and dealers of real K98 snipers in the country. Bought the rifle for $300.00 from someone that only wanted it for a picture for a book he was writing and went from there.

$1100.00. Most may not realize it is cammed for the round and a WWII scope in excellent condition.

I really like late war K98s and dou45s are great collectables. Here's one I bought a few years ago.
