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.

During the weekend , someone was looking to offload some rifles he had.
One of them was an Israeli K98 which was in good condition.

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

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 have a replacement stock manufactured
locally out of beech and would fit the new upper barrel band.

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.

The Crest and 7,62 combination is to die for,,, And if you feel comfortable can I ask how much this cost???

Where as I do have a couple Izzy Mausers, I wish I had collected them heavier in the past.. Only in the past few years have I appreciated the many variations...

Considering how the Israelis put these back together, I would be shocked if any parts match..

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

Now I need to find an FN manufacture

What a great rifle. And they shoot as well as they look. I hope you can shoot yours at long range. M-80 Ball and M-118 175 grain bullets shoot the best.

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 is what I believe is a beech wood stock. A fantastic rifle and if possible when it arrives can you really photo document all aspects of that specimen. I would love to see the details. I also would like to add your example with macro picture documentation to my German rifle post. I have never seen an example at a gun show in Wisconsin. Does the bolt have two round hole and match? Check that out when it arrives. A better example than yours would be hard to find-- perfect. :o :o That was a lucky day-- actually a heart stopper. :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :clap: :clap:

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 something specific.

It was a great day, and i behaved like a 5 year old at Christmas time. It will make a fine companion for the DOU 45 I have as well.
