  • I hate gun shows.....K98 target rifle build

    So while at our last guns how I happened upon a box full of K98 receivers. 25 bucks and I couldn't say no. Found one with the stud and holes drilled for K98 sniper mounts but figured out later it wasn't in the correct spectrum. It is however a German k98. So begins another project. Looking for a build something along the lines of my TKIV-85 build a couple years ago. Wood target stock, milled out for aluminum chassis, Heavy target barrel in some caliber....6.5x55 would be cool and of course a full blueprint on the action and truing. I guess I know what I'll be doing this winter. I do have a short k-98 original scope mount to part with if anyone needs one. It's rough but would work well.

    I'm looking for parts!
    Target stock
    short chambered or good barrel, heavy contour
    k98 bolt! The one that came with the action is pretty much junk

    I'm thinking a Parker hale replica is in order. The stocks seem a little easier to come by for a reasonable price.

      Including bolts, etc????

      Damn, that's a deal! Holes or no.

      Got any extras?

      Cheers,

        Yeah the two receivers I picked out both had bolts in them but they were junk. Gunked into a solid heap, might be able to use the bodies but the rest was tossed. None were matching. Just shoved in a reciever. That guy is most likely down in billings next week. He had about ten when I was there. Apparently his dad was an older gunsmith and collected a bunch of them to use for builds and never did. He actually cut me a deal. Two and the transfer for 50.00 I couldn't say no if I tried.

          Love building off those K98s. The only thing I wish I had looked at better was whether the aftermarket base that had been put on was straight...it's not. But USO windage adjustable rings fixed that issue for me. Probably won't ever sell it with that issue, but oh well, just makes me actually keep one of my guns for once!

          I have the factory stock and bottom metal if you're interested.

            At that price it would be near impossible to say no.
            I didn't know if you saw my pm, but I used to log in your area.
            Every shot serves a purpose, whether accurate or inaccurate. It will always tell you what you did, and did not do, right. Even if all you have is a fraction of a second to make it, learn from it. So the next one is even better.

              I did, thought I responded.

              Once upon a time in Europe I had a chance to play with various Mauser based sniper rifles and The Parker hale was immediately my favorite. Talk a bout a rifle that just "felt" good. Not to mention the one that I played with was a fucking tack driver.

                Funky things going on here. I tried to respond a little bit ago and the site wouldn't let me.
