I have for sale a 1937 dated Erma German K98 Rifle. Conversion Kit that is absolutly mint, un-used in a fitted box. All bluing is perfect with no trace of use that I can see. THIS IS A MUSEUM LEVEL PIECE!! All parts have matching serial numbers where marked and all the correct inspection markings are present in the correct locations. Comes with 1 magazine in a pine fitted box for all pieces included. Box is not marked and could possibly be a post war item to house this kit since it only has 1 mag. If box is post war it is done to the same high quality standards as period storage boxes. A truly rare set to find in this condition. It would be impossible to upgrade to a better set. RIA auctions have brought high prices for sets that are used and in poorer condition. You are purchasing what is shown in the pics. Note – This is fairly rare collectors piece.
