    Antique arms auctions

    Guys what’s the word on the Wellington arms auctions?
    I guess they’re unlikely to resume in the short term ?
    I see no dates on their website.
    My elderly dad has a bunch of old rifles he was planning to send to auction and I am wondering what’s the go ?
    Some are old and probably not worth much, but some are in GC and too good for the cops to crush.
    Any info appreciated

    Unsure m8, I’m not much of an expert on the K98
    I just know it’s in pretty good nick & has a laminated stock

    The clues are if the caliber is 8mm/308 and if markings of Star of David is present or the Waffenamts aka dirty birds are peened/undamaged.

    Identifying one is an enjoyable process.
