    This was Erwin's personal rifle, captured by Monty. Laughable.

    Palm tree? Looks like usage damage to me or an impact. Is there such a thing as a Palm Tree stamp?

    Guys that little "palm tree" proof mark is stamped on nearly all A/A (Broad Arrow) North Africa theater Commonwealth capture K98k rifles. We are pretty sure this is a commonwealth mark.

    I documented this in the appendix of volume II.

    Yep right as rain. My buddy is selling this and would like to own the rifle but his price is a bit high based on condition.
    Would love to own either a Mauser or Mauser Berlin A/A marked rifle.

    I think the issue is with the listing description. The way the listing is worded implies that DAK marked the receiver and not the Brits. Even if it didn't have the provenance of being featured in Vol2b, better pictures are needed for a >$2k rifle

    I must say, I would not give a rifle with this mark a second glance. It looks like a dent. This is a great website for being schooled. And since I even own all three volumes, I should go back and take reading class again. Had to go hit the books. Thank you Bruce.
