  1. Turn NEW bolt rifle into OLD military style rifle

    Gunsmithing
    Hi all, I am new to his forum. I am wondering about the feasibility of turning a newer rifle like a Ruger M77 (Hawkeye, GSR, etc.) into a Kar98 or Yugo M48 lookalike. I really love the look and feel of old Mausers, but 8mm is drying up and I am not a reloader. Additionally, I am not so...

    Ex-Military Rifles & Cartridges
    Hello, I need some assistance identifying an old rifle. This rifle, which I believe to be a Kar98K, based on what info I have discovered so far, belongs to my father. He hasn't shot it in years, and shows some hesitancy in doing so, not knowing the history of the weapon (was it ever used in...
  6. Reattaching Mauser K98 Rear Sight

    Ex-Military Rifles & Cartridges
    I came to own a very nice 1943 Mauser Gewehr K98. The rear sight was removed as the owner thought to have the receiver tapped for a scope as part of sporterization. No modifications; however, were ever made. I have all the rear sight parts. I learned that the rear sight was originally...
  7. 7mm Mauser Wont Feed Correctly

    Gunsmithing
    I recently came into possession of a sporterized 7x57 Mauser by way of third hand. I did a friend a favor and he just gave it to me as he is not a shooter. I do not know what type it is, only that it is a Mauser. It is a nice gun and has potential to be a nice hunting rifle, but I have a...
  8. Question About 8mm Mauser

    Gunsmithing

    I 'm researching this rifle from my grandfather who was in WWII in the 10th Mountain division. I think its a Mauser 98K, but I'm not really sure as I have not seen any others like it. He had taken it off a sniper. It has the Nazi Eagle stamped on the bolt which I will follow up with the...
  12. Please help me identify this Mauser

    Ex-Military Rifles & Cartridges
    So I picked up a cheap Mauser rifle today that someone had butchered while trying to "sporterize" it. I figure since it's no longer original, I might look into putting a synthetic stock on it and having a bit of fun. Not sure if I'm gonna look to maybe have a new barrel put on it and a good...
