    K98's are good rifles. Accurate, reliable, durable. The only thing is-be prepared to spend lots of money on ammo for it. I would definatly buy one if i had a larger "ammo budget".
    As for mauser.org, it looks like a decent site, i checked them out a couple years ago but i have no personal experience with them.

    Last I checked, you could still get a case of 900 very high quality ammo for 350 bucks from midwayusa.

    Mossberg88, do you reload? The 8MM Mauser round is easy to load for and you avoid the corrosive surplus ammo that's around.
    The Mitchell Mausers are refinished to look like that.

    No, i don't reload.
    If i bought it, I would use it probably once or twice a month at the range. Nothing too excessive.

    do not buy a K98k from mitchell's expecting a collector's rifle

    what mitchell's is selling are russian captures that have been pimp shined by mitchell's... to be honest you're better off getting a regular russian capture and using the money saved to buy ammo

    The K98 is about as Classic a rifle as you can get. I have various
    "species" of this model. Many countries rebuilt these rifles from
    WWII vintage German actions. I have one from each of these countries.
    Russia. Israel. Iraq. Norway. I also have one original, matching German

    The K98 is the end product of Mauser model 98 evolution. There is a
    good reason that during it's time it was considered military bolt action

    Highly Recommended.

    Here's a few of my favorites. An Israeli rebuild in mint shape in
    7.62x51 caliber built on a Czech action. Then a very nice
    Norwegian K98 rebuild in 30-06 caliber.
    You can see where the Norwegian armorer made a cut in the receiver to
    accommodate the longer 30-06 round. Finally, the original German
    WWII vintage K98 with all original matching part numbers.
