Kar98AZ in 7.65x53

Post by DWM »

Hi all, I shared this a couple of weeks before the old forum went down, so I thought that I'd repost. I picked this baby up at the gun show a few months back for a very nice price (largely due the the carving). The odd thing about it is that it is chambered for 7.65x53 and likewise stamped 7,65 as you can see. The best that I can figure is that this carbine went to Belgium as war reparations and was reworked there. Any other ideas?

Man, that is an odd one.

I do love the 7.65x53 cartridge though.
