    Well I'm saving up for another surplus rifle and was hoping to get a nice Mauser 98k style rifle. Can anyone recommend a specific rifle that is both cheap and accurate. Has to be under $300

    At that price I would look at the Yugo 24/47s and M48s, same action.

    But your wanting of a Kar98k can only be solved with a real 98, the Yugoslav guns are nice, but don't substitute them for a nice German Mauser. What im trying to say is... BUY BOTH!:p;)

    I've been hunting too. I've found that the Yugo M24/47 for $209 at Samco Global Arms is the cheapest Mauser I've found. I've seen some around the $250-300 range on Gunbroker for the M24/47 and M48s. An alternative is the Turkish Mauser, they average around $200 but I've seen them for about $125, but they have been used a lot!
