Depends on what you mean by "best" The world of 98k's is a very complex one....and in a general statement I would say the pre-war 98's to hold great value, there are some here and there that are much more valuable.
Now as to the best shooting guns....eh....here there same same.....given that the guns are in like shape they will all shoot about the same....a bnz is going to shoot with a byf is going to shoot with a dot.
The real shame is that place that sells them....I think the initials are MM. Biggest bunch of crooks out there....oh well now that the supply of 98k's are starting to dry up they can't rob people anylonger on those, but now are working the 91/30 and VZ angles.
