Re: Something fishy in K98s

Two barrels with a close up screen shot and there is not a scratch or dent on them. My thoughts, these were milled off and polished, then reblued to get rid of the import marks.

Re: Something fishy in K98s

I just checked the K98 forum and they are a little harsh on the subject but caught the K98s ASAP.
