Well it's not a "real" K98, but tought it was a nice addition and
a cheaper alternative as a weekly shooter than my other k98:-)

Still have to clean it up a little bit and I'll take it to the range on tuesday :-)

Now I only have to find the matching scope ... :-)

So...

shouldered it a few times and the stock really is too long...

luckily I still had a 1941 JP Sauer stock lying around doing nothing :)

And eventually rebuilt the damn thing completely so that I
can use it for competition with iron sights.
It groups very well, so it was worth the effort and money.

Very cool :bow:

What does the scope and upper mount assembly look like? I am having a hard time visualizing it. Would this have originally been fitted with an Israeli Nimrod scope (Swarovski / Kahles ZF69 copy)? Or a Czech Meopta like the Romanian K98 snipers? Or something else?

Also, any comments on the quality of the Polish Fox Militaria stock? They have an impressive selection of replica stocks available on the website, including some that are not available anywhere else that I have seen. BTW, here is the corrected link http://www.fox-military.com/en/index.php

Hello Peconga,

the original scope looks like this:

http://www.milsurps.com/images/imported/2013/03/immagine001la-1.jpg

they were custom made by Wild Heerbrugg and almost impossible
to find since they weren't sold together with the rifles.

I also bought a stock from fox to restore my G43



The action drops right in, almost no bedding in was necessary.

He delivers very fine work.

Thanks for sharing the stock source. I have an Izzy FN 98 in 7.62 that might be a good candidate for restock/refinish. Has great rifling but significant surface rust and so-so stock.

I took red glue laminate for both of the stocks,
in case of the G43 it's the original colour, but I used it also
for the FN because I liked the pattern :)
