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.

Norwegian K98s

Gew88, Gew98, Kar98 etc.

This website has information on Krags that the Germans forced the Norwegians to manufacture for them at Kongsberg during WW2:

Scroll down to the Norwegian section. Some of these forced manufacture Krags were chambered for 8x57.
Did not notice that before, and idea how many were manufactured??? Were they just made of spare parts laying around, or were they
actually made from scratch????

Everyday I find out how much larger the Krag world is!!!

The Krags made during the occupation were new made rifles, not reworked or spare parts guns.
If I remember right these were made and are dated for 3 different years.
I used to have a couple of them, not sure if they are still in the safe or not? I also have some of the Norwegian ammo for them in my ammo collection.

Came across this RI auction forgotten weapons link has me details on the German forced Krags.. I was impressed with the low numbers..
Heck these guns must have cost a fortune per unit when you think of all the work to design, revampt the tooling, etc etc...
