I noticied a misidentified rifle in the June 2008 issue of Guns & Ammo. My letter to the editor is presented below. All the best...

Dear Editor:
On page 26 of the June 2008 issue of your magazine (Gun Room Identification & Values) is a picture of what is supposed to be a German Mauser Kar98k rifle from WWII, which it is not. The upper handguard is much too long and the rifle depicted appears to be a Yugoslav Model 48 or 48A and certainly not worth $800.00 dollars. I have great respect for Mr. Garry James and your magazine and believe a corrected picture should be displayed to avoid confusing your readers. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Gil Martin

Guns & Ammo responded
I got a reply from the editor of G&A and he acknowledged the error. All the best...

Dear Editor:
Thank you for the response. To be honest, the Yugoslav Model 48 and 48A are '98 clones and are dimensionally different and most parts will not interchange with a '98. In addition, the Kar98k is much smoother and better made than the Yugoslav clones. All the best...

Dear Gil:

You’re right. We were working off a small photo image and didn’t note that the archive photo was of a 98 variant.
