German Karbiner 98k by PLutonius German Karbiner 98k by PLutonius
This is a typical example of a Russian Capture (RC) German Kar98k. Very few matching numbers and a heck of alot of electro-penciled but still a fine example.

How are the Russian captures? Are they in good condition? Don't care about collectability, only how good is it for shooting.

Pretty good. Obviously not as good say a vet bring back K98. Expect electro-pencil forced matching by the russians and shellaced stocks. There may also be various capture markings on the reciever and some proof marks may be marked out. Functionally they are great!

Also, even though they are not the Crème de la crème they still are worth over 400 USD. Drill/Tapping the receiver or hacking the stock will result in significant decrease in value.

That's all I needed to know. I could care less about collector's value, I just want a shooter in good shape.

Your RC is in much better condition than mine (albeit lacking a cleaning rod). Did you happen to touch yours up a little bit, or did I just get the short end of the stick here?

I don`t normally touch the stocks on my surplus rifles but I did removed the Russian shellac with mineral spirits and used Boiled Linseed Oil. Other than that, nothing.

Amazing pic, i'd like to have it in my hands, do you have any pic of a PPSh-41?

Wish I had one of those in my collection, but I unfortunately do not. Real problem is an authentic WW2 era PPSh-41 is quite expensive :(

Actually I have never seen an authentic PPSH-41 for sale. In the United States, they (fully automatic firearms) have to be made and registered before 1984 to be purchased legally. Consequnecy, such arms are very expensive and hard to get. Heck, some transferable machine guns cost more than a Mercedes.

The PPSH-41 is made new today in semi-automatic only with a real nasty looking 16" barrel to meet federal SBR laws.
