    Reblued and slightly pitted K98k in a sporter stock. It has no value as a military collectible. Its worth up to 400 bucks as a hunting rifle.

    My guess would be $250-275 but I may be out of touch. Stock look nice, metal not so much. Pitted steel is hard to make right. A careful polish and reblue would be expensive. I would consider buying one for the price I included for hunting only. Military tri9ggers can be improved a little but again cost money. I think it would be difficult to make money off of them.

    The metal looks like it's been rode hard and put away wet. I'd want a gunsmith to look it over before I bought. Speaking of looking them over, what condition are the bores?
    If the bores are like the outside, I'd pass.
