    my faher spent his retirement as an amateur gunsmith producing professional guns! i have inherited a custom built rifle, model 98 action with the following markings....a funkt celtic "c" cw.98....8282 on one side, 2 k's on the other side with a gothic "D" and on the nob handle is stamped "z" my father would build rifles around the model 98 actions....is this a Czech action? it is stainless steel as well. The rifle is stamped 22-250 on the barrel but a remington 22-250 cartridge will not fit past the crimp in the brass any help would be great. sitting on a gold mine?

    A pic would help. Czech made are usually marked "ZBROJOVKA BRNO, A.S." on the left side rail. No military actions were ever made in S.S. The work would have had to have been done by a well known gunsmith of the day to be 'collectable'.

    If you would/can, remove the bolt and take a picture of the firing pin end. I'm curious as to whether it's a single or double claw extractor.

    If no one can give you an estimated worth, I know someone who can but it will be up to you to contact them.
