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: GEW 98 need year made by serial number please.

The year should be on the top of the receiver with the name of the manufacturer. There were 10 different makers. Carbine or long rifle? Unfortunately Storz in "Rifle & Carbine 98" 2006 provides production numbers by company per year, but no serial numbers. I have never seen lists by serial numbers. ...
