Have a chance to get a Gew98 Mauser.. Its in poor shape, The guy says it looks like a PO tried to restore it and did a bad job, looks like somebody removed the markings off the barrel/reciever... Are they worth fixing? How about making a reproduction sniper? Did the germans ever scope Gew98's or did they only use the K98?
What would be a decent price for this?

Offer 40 bucks and see how the guy acts...
It's worth what your willing to give. If it's functional and safe, I'd be willing to give up to $100 for that one.

What would be the correct scope to make this a "sniper"? Where can I get a set of repro mounts and scope, for not a insane price?

Im finding a bunch of K98 stuff, not much GEW stuff

I think I only want it if I can turn it into a "sniper rifle"

Better see how well it shoots before spending money to make it a "sniper". I've had many 98s and never found one to be very accurate.
