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.

Gew98 local find

#1 Post by burban89 » Sun Jun 25, 2017 7:56 pm

I picked this rifle up earlier this year at a not so large gun show from a walk in seller who just wanted to get enough cash for a better rifle. We settled on a price of $150 since he was in a hurry to get the cash he needed to make a very quick purchase at another table. It's a Navy Arms import piece but the rifling is in great shape and overall there are no cracks anywhere in the stock so it'll make a great shooter. I know that this year and maker were purpose built to be sent to Turkey but aside from a few small markings on the safety there aren't any other Turk marks that I've been able to find. I also recently came into a better condition Gew98 stock that I might put this one into however since I got that stock for free I might save it until a sportered Gew98 comes around (that's the norm in my area).

You did real good for $150. You got the Grandfather of all 98 Mauser actions. The Mauser brothers got it right in 1898 and their 98 action is still being made today.
