Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Military Surplus k98ks commonly found at gun shows

More of the above Libertytreecollectors specimen: I bet this will sell in a week. :doh: ( update 23:30: it sold in 6 hours of this posting) IN ONE DAY! RCs must be holding values. Note the electro-written numbers on all the mismatched parts. Line outs are through the original German serial numbers....

Re: Military Surplus k98ks commonly found at gun shows

I've got an RC 1941 Portuguese K98. Calfed, Here is a question. Did both of those rifles, the RC 1941 Portuguese K98 and the Mauser banner, have a stock serial number stamped into the left side of the stock, parallel to the barrel and perpendicular to the butt plate (Like most RC's)? SECOND, do the...

Are M59 sights and stocks available in Norway?

Re: Norwegian K98s

7.62 Nato.

I've got a sported K98 laying around. If I could find a proper stock and sights, I would be on my way to a faux M59.

Did the M67 use the same barrel?

Re: Norwegian K98s

I've got a number of Kongsberg K98 barrels...several are K98 profile, chambered in .308. Those are in the white. I also have a couple of longer Kongsberg "target barrels". They are heavier profile and turned down at the muzzle, possibly for a front sight. None of the barrels have ever been mounted.

Re: Norwegian K98s

Im not sure. Some people say 1957. I guess all the AYR marked ammo can be with corrosive primers. All the raufoss older than 1960 is to be considered possibly corrosive in my opinion. I've been treating it like corrosive, luckily. Tell me, Lumberjack...are M59 target rifles common over there? Would...

Re: Norwegian K98s

Do you have any idea when Raufoss stopped using corrosive primers in their 30.06 ammunition?

Re: Norwegian K98s

Norwegian ammunition is good stuff.

I've got several hundred rounds of "AYR" 56 headstamped 30.06 AP black tip ammunition and it shoots very well.

Re: Norwegian K98s

Pretty good shooting, Lumberjack. Do you know what the bullet weight and muzzle velocity of the Norwegian military ammo is? I haven't shot my Norwegian K98 much, but when I first got it, I shot a few rounds at 50 yards to make sure the sights were on. I used 150 gr Federal Powershok ammunition https...

Re: Norwegian K98s

I've heard that There are Norwegian K98's in 7.62 x 51 also, although I've never seen one. I've got several Kongsberg made Norwegian 7.62 x 51 K98 barrels that are in the white and have never been mounted, which offers some confirmation that at one time there were some 7.62 x 51 K98's. Or someone p...
