    I agree but, some have the oversized stocks. This seems to be one. More photos and "in hand" is always nice.

    The sling is not correct. Someone's wet dream for sure. Looks like a dagger type cross strap ??

    All 3 of the VK98's they have are real, and came from the Craig Brown collection. You really should study these, they are pretty easy to verify. For starters, the first 2500 or so were made with cut down K98k stocks like this one has *(this is one of the first 600), then slab side stocks came in, then more cut down stocks. Anyway, all of the ones they have are real albeit overpriced in my opinion. I just bought one exactly like this in a little more worn condition for like 2k.
