I've wanted a K98k sniper for some time. One of my good friends is known as about the biggest collector and supplier of true WW2 K98 snipers. Well the last one that he sold went for $16000.00. It is slightly over my budget. So I decided on a repro. Rifle is a 1944 Czech M24, which were used and made into Snipers by Germany. $300.00. The mounts(high turret) and rings will be from Austria, so close to original only an expert would know. $1000.00. Mounted in Pa. $150.00 + shipping with scope. Scope I want is a 4x90 Ajack, $750.00. $2300.00 Max. The last rifle I saw from the gentleman that mounted the bases was Zeroed without any adjustments. Drilled, tapped and silver soldered.
