Where can I find a PPS Kar98K?

Postby Armo1000 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 5:47 pm

I have recently been meaning to buy an Airsoft Kar98K that I could use skirmishing, and after some research it seems to me that the best option out there (that is both functional and reasonably affordable) is the PPS Kar98K.

Now the problem is that I can’t seem to find one of these anywhere. Unfortunately with the way things are, WW2 airsoft guns are no where near as available in the market as your average M4, which is a shame.

My question is does anyone know anywhere I could purchase one of these?

Also if anyone has any experience with using the rifle please let me know what it’s like.

Thanks

Langnasen has the right idea, drag yourself through all of the selling sites, join all the forums and ask, personally I would try to find a springer modification to a k98, as gas can be a pain, but if that's what you want search and you will find, this is a good place to start!

Thanks for the reply.

I agree, a proper springer K98 would be preferable, but no major company makes these as of yet (despite the potential!), so i will stick with what i can get for now.

Apart from here where would you suggest be the bast places to ask and look?

Try used airsoft, weapon crate, I've even had a good result or two from freeads site, there are quite a few as you probably know already, you will find the same guns come up on different sites, K98's turn up from time to time, just keep looking.

It's also worth trying all the Hong Kong airsoft sites, I bought one from there a year or so ago

There were some in a Swiss shop a while back but they seem to all be gone too.

Of course, this whole thing depends on your budget - if you're offering silly money I'd sell you mine

I did have a good look on the HK sites but to no avail, anywhere that did have them are out of stock now. Pretty sure they have stopped making these rifles altogether at this point.

And yes i did see that Swiss site, so that might be an option, http://www.softgun.ch/pps-kar98k-gas-ri ... anguage=de
although i am tempted by the first link, considering it comes with a scope and ample mags, just waiting for a reply from the seller to see about its condition.

Im looking to find one at a reasonable price, i don't want to spend stupid money.

Yeh it was me that found the stash at the Swiss shop - they had 8 or 9 back in July so MIGHT just have one but I doubt it.
