Can't wait to get my hands on a G41 or 43 some day.

Any unique waffenampts or other stampings/markings on any of them? I mean, they're all unique, but you know what I mean.

Also, 4th picture down in your OP, the second K98 from the right has a really nice almost sunburst orange looking stock. Any more pics of that beauty available?

Thanks!
Thanks SB, The K98K You mention is actually a Post War Produced Mauser under French occupation At the Mauser Plant in Oberndorf Germany.

















This rifle was produced in the Fall of 1945 and is what I would call one of the first Cold War Rifles.
The Star on the receiver denotes French production. the French changed the cleaning rod and adapted
the rifle to take a French sling.

BTW it's not Iver Johnson it's just Johnson. Iver is a different Co.

Melvin Johnson was the Man behind the M1941. He had no formal training in small arms development.

Cool!

Not Iver Johnson.

The M1941 Johnson was made by Johnson Automatics Inc.

I missed the boat on the cheap RC K98's due to being mostly interested in US firearms at that time. It wasn't until years later that I finally picked one up. The only original matching numbers on it are the receiver and barrel with the stock having the typical Russian 'matching' number stamped on it.



It is an early K98 though...

Nice one HP, I did just the opposite. I started out with the German stuff and came back to the U.S. After. However my small USA collection is
nothing like what you have.

Very nice Hansell, that's a beautiful rifle.

Also, thanks for the explanation on the Johnson rifle. Having not ever heard of them before, and reading way to late at night, my brain failed me there.

Sad to say the only K98 I own currently is an RC BCD 44. Shoots great but yeah, need about 10 more and then at least a couple G41's and 43's someday.

FYI

Many RC's are in rough condition, this one is better than most.
