My back to issue 1939 K98 Mauser

Took me a while, I bought an all matching number 1939 K98 at a local pawn shop a few months ago. It was a GI bring back with no import markings or Russian capture markings. Sad thing, the stock was duffel cut or sporterised. This is how I got it, even the stock matched numbers...like I said, cut down though:





Ended up buying and extra German Russian capture stock in about the same grain that I might merge into the original stock, but got another pretty much same year stock that looks good and the only way you can tell it does not match is removing the stock. I am buying a non numbered early butt plate and front band so all is good.

This is what I am left with right now...bayonet is replica for now.



Outstanding shooter, barrel looks excellent. Privi 8mm ammo shoots great through it. Stock is not laminated. Should I use linseed oil on it or leave it as is?

Action is butter.....to hold a weapon like this and feel the history and know you can shoot it again and again without if getting damaged like my 1917 Luger.....is priceless.

Anyone else have a WWII Mauser?

One hell of a gun to shoot and feel in your hands. This is the gun all bolt actions came from. Any restore tips for the blue which is in great condition or stock would be much appreciated. Also, I am more of a handgun collector......but I think every hunter or rifle collector should at least shoot one of these or have one. I really ended up lucky with the price I bought it for. Replacing the stock did set me back quite a bit though.

I've got a REALLY nice numbers matching Arisaka that I love to shoot. It still even has the mum on it. Unfortunately it's in MN right now and I'm in VA so I can't get any pictures.

Nice tailo, I figured you had to have one. Looks like a post 1941 model with the cupped butt stock. What brand of ammo do you shoot out of it?
