Nice rifle. Do you know of a parts source for these? I picked up one of these a few months back with a bayonet. Only thing wrong with it is the rear site spring is broken. I can't find one anywhere.

I have bought parts for mine on E-bay. But it may take a while, I needed the spring under the cartridge lifter, took more than a year before I saw one that they would sell without the whole barreled action. When searching, don't forget to enter the search terms both with and without the "s" in Kropatschek, people list it both ways.
