Re: Israeli K98

It seems nothing is wasted.

3rd line troops issued with obsolete weapons are better than being unarmed. Especially in that part of the world.

Re: Israeli Mauser No.2

Hi 72 usmc I thought it may have been beech but was not sure. That would line up the theory that it has been restocked when it was refurbished and rebarreled along with the Israeli made barrel band. Once I get it home i will take more pics, you are quite welcome to use them. Let me know if you need ...

Re: Israeli Mauser No.2

I'm definitely lucky to have found this one in its condition and price.

It will definitely go to the range, thanks for the recipe

That one is in nice condition compared to many I've seen. I always wondered if there were any around that missed the conversion to 7.62, and still were in 8mm.
I have seen one recently for sale in 8mm in Oz.

Missed out on that one

Re: Israeli Mauser No.2

The market price in OZ is around $600-$700AUD ($450-$525US) but I paid around half of this. You can understand why i was a little excited. It came as a package deal with 3 other firearms. The rest was sold off to others so it was a good day. This is the link to my other Israeli http://www.surplusrif...

A picture of the forestock.

There is a 7.62 carved into the bottom of the butt as per other examples.

The magazine plate and trigger guard as well as the upper barrel band's serial
numbers do not match. I don't know of the other parts until I get it home.

Re: Israeli Mauser No.2

The wood work was in very good condition, much better than any I have seen. I'm not sure what type of wood the stock is made from,any help on this would be appreciated. I think the stock has been swapped out due to the great condition it is in. When the Israeli's refurbed their K98 if required would...

Re: Israeli Mauser No.2

What was unusual to me was the barrel band, which after some research was Israeli manufacture.
