I need some basic info on this K98 MAUSER? VALUE? PLEASE HELP!
Picked this up the other day. I dont know much about it, except that it's a mauser, 8mm built in 1944.
I took all the markings down and they read here. " There Are " 2 swastika's on the reciever. The one swastika has a mark below it Wa,AB? Something like that? d o u 44 stamp on top of reciever.
serial # (I think?) 605 on bolt/reciever/inside of wood stock.
A 605 cc, stamp on inside of wood stock.
C B stamp on barrel
d o u ABC or (A80) or (ABG) ?? Hard to read ?
A # 2 stamp underside of barrel
A stamp underside of barrel of C 1.
S on bottom of reciever located by screw hole.
Bottom plate has a mark of byf on bottom. I'm not shure this is for this gun or not??
Anyone know what I have?? Or what it may be worth ???. I know its missing the top hand grip thats made from wood. The upper ring band.. And ring spring... I want to clean up the stock by using a paint stripper. NO SAND PAPER !! And re-stain it. Do you guys recommend me doing this?? Will it hurt the value if I re-do the stock??? Its pretty dam ruff " as-is" . Please help !!! I will attach some photo's.

Alot of parts get # on the German stuff in fact my G43 has everything # down to the lugs on the bolt.The more numbers you find match of coarse the better and it's good the stock is number inside.As far as cleaning the stock I have used Easy Off oven cleaner in the past worked pretty good.Now here is a repair on a K98 Surplusrifle Forum • View topic - BLO Finish with an Oil Scrub
I recall something years ago with the stock I redid weras IF I remember properly were one moistens a dimple,exposes to low heat over stove and buff with 000 steel wool.You need to look that up it worked pretty good in some order there.

Before you try any strong cleaning of the stock try soap and warm water. I got an old Trapdoor and after washing unit markings and cartouche that weren't there magically appeared.
The procedure for raising dents is to place a wet rag over the dent and then steam it with a hot iron. Done carefully you may not even have to sand or refinish
