Fantastic book! Yes, it is the "bible" of the K98. Anyone know the going price these days? I bought mine years ago and it was very expensive then, just curious.

Cheers,
Kelly

Check Amazon or Ebay or if there are vendors at your events... I'm not really sure over there. I bought mine several years ago at a gun show here in the states.

Cheers,
Kelly

It is an expensive one... mine was $60.00 6 years ago at the gun show.. here is the US Amazon link. $46.95 and up $69.95 plus shipping to the UK. I'm not sure if that is based on weight, location or both, but it is a rather weighty book. Good luck!
