    If I was rich I wouldn't mind having it in my collection. But at the moment only way im spending 6 grand on a gun is if its got a happy switch.

    Yup.

    It was made on what would later be known as the moon landing set.

    :hsugh: not really. It was used by the Prussian military long before the SS.
    The Waffen SS used more regular Wa marked guns than SS or deaths head marked ones, i'd be weary of buying one of these, there are so many faked "SS" guns floating around. I've only ever seen one SS marked K98k that was could be proved authentic.

    I don't give a damn who used it, really. If I buy a gun it's for my use, not it's 'historic' past. I don't understand some collectors' hard ons for unit-used guns.

    Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

    kinda fishy that the mark looks very fresh on a very worn rifle, and that the marks are painted white.

    :hsugh: the seller rubbed chalk on the symbol to make it photograph better.

    the K98 didn't come into existence until 1935, so I kinda doubt this one was used by the Prussian's :o

    i know that, I am saying that the Deaths Head is not an exclusive SS trademark. And the Prussian Arsenal in Erfurt was making K98a's in 1907. but no, i dont think is a Prussian gun, all i'm saying is again, the Deaths Head has been a part of the German/Prussian military long before the Third Reich.

    It's just another form of collecting.
