I stopped at the local gunsmith shop to pick up a shotgun barrel that just got choke tubes installed. The 'smith asked me to identify a customer's rifle. It was an all matching German Kar98a carbine from WWI in excellent condition. The owner wanted to sell it and was interested in learning a fair price. The rifle was all military except for the Weaver bases sitting atop the receiver. I asked to examine the bore which exhibited signs of corrosive ammo use and without proper cleaning. I told him it lacked collector interest and needed a new barrel. The gunsmith agreed with me. The owner asked for an approximate value and I told him it depended on what someone was willing to pay. I also told him that without the scope bases and bad bore, it would be worth a lot more. Take care...

What a shame. That is a fine classic rifle that is now just a shooter. All the best...

Pumpkinslinger,
If I saw that 1941 Johnson, I would have cried. What were they thinking? All the best...

stovepipe,
I looked on Mitchell's Mausers and attached their link. They do not offer Kar98a rifles from WWI. All the best...
