    The silver donut looking rivet in the buttstock is a tool to help remove the firing pin from the striker. Remove the striker assembly from the bolt, stick the firing pin into the rivet and push down on the bolt shroud until the sear body is clear of the shroud and twist it 90 degrees and remove. Or at least that's how I remember doing it many moons ago.

    I was thinking the same thing, or someone refurb it themselves.

    Nice K98.....I'm with the other guys, It looks like a "Mitchell's Mauser". They usually sold for two to three times as much as one available in the surplus market, but they were very nice.
