    Default M98 IN 6.5X55 PROJECT

    OK I HAVE THIS STUFF WHAT NOW LOL

    1917 M98 GERMAN SPANDAU MAUSER IN 8MM MARKED GEW 98 OR GEW 98 ?? BUBA SPORTER WITH MIS MATCHING BENT HANDEL BOLT. 22 INCH BARREL AN CUT STOCK WITH POCKET KNIFE CHECKERING. NO SCOPE MOUNT HOLES OR OTHER MODS TO THE RECIVER.

    ITS UGLY COST ME TO MUCH BUT IS HAS NO RUST. TO BE HONEST IT WOULD BE A FAST HANDELING OPEN SITE DEER GUN AN ID HUNT IT IF i DIDNT NEED IT AN HADENT BOUGHT IT FOR PARTS. NO CLUE HOW IT SHOTS DONT CARE. IF IT SHOT GOOD ID BE HESITANT TO TAKE APART LIKE AL THE OHTR ONES I BOUGH.

    I HAVE A TWO 27.5" SHULTS AN LARSEN TARGET BARRELS THREADED TO FIT A LARGE RING MAUSER AN A FREE SLIGHTLY MESSED UP SPORTING STOCK. I HAVE ZERO TOOLS FOR THIS PROJECT IT WILL NEED TO BE TRUED BEFORE A REBARREL . ANY WAY HERE IS PICTURES OF THE MESS.

    TOOLING AN JIGS IS A VERY EXPENSIVE PROPISITION.

    I,M GOING TO SIDE LINE THE PROJECT UNTILL AT LEAST DECEMBER. MY 6MM BR IMPROVED HAS GOT MY FULL ATTENTION AN ALL OF MY MONEY RIGHT NOW AS WELL AS I HAVE TO DO SMOME TRAVELING FOR PERSONAL FAIMLY REASONS NEXT MONTH.

    I HAVE MADE CONTACT WITH A RETIRED WELL KNOWN SMITH WHO NOW WORKS OUT OF HIS HOME. HE SAID HE CAN HELP ME SOME. I DONT KNOW HOW MUCH TIME HE HAS FOR ME BUT ITS A GOOD OPERTUNITY TO LEARN A FEW THINGS FROM A PRO. HE SHOOTS AT THE TRAP CLUP AN IS KNOWN FOR EXCEPTIONAL SHOT GUN WORK ON VINTAGE DOUBLES. HES THE GUY I USE ON MY TRAP GUNS THAT I DONT WANT TO SCREW UP.

    HE SAID HE HAS A MANDREL TO TURN THE RECIVER FACE AN ALL THE STUFF. IVE SEEN HIS SHOP AN ITS A GOLD MINE.

    I MAY BE INTERESTED IN THE OFFER OF THE TOOLS IF IT FALLS THROUGH. IM LIKLEY GOING TO BUY OR BUILD A BARREL VICE AN ACTION WRENCH AS IM SURE ILL NEED THOSE IN THE FUTURE. I HAVE 6 OTHER MAUSER RIFLES AN A FEW REMINGTON 700,S AN A BUNCH OF MOSINS THAT ILL LIKELY NEED TO DO STUFF TO SOME OF THEM SOME DAY AS WELL AS IM STILL PLANING A SCREW IN BARREL AK SO I NEED TO MAKE A BARREL WRENCH ANY WAY IT DOSENT LOOK HARD. THE ACTION WRENCHS IS ANOTHER MATTER. I ALSO GREATLY APPRECIATE THE OFFER. THANKS A LOT.

    AS FAR AS THE BOLT LAPPING IS IT JUST A TOOL THAT SCREWS INTO THE RECIVER TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE BOLT WHILE WORKING IT ???? i HAVE A FEW BAD MAUSER BARRELS I COULD LIKELY CUT THE TREADED PART OFF AN MODIFY. I THINK I CAN DO THE BOLT FACE WITH A BARREL STUB BORED OUT TO TAKE A ENDMILL OR LAPPING TOOL. I HAVE SOME TOOLS MADE UP FOR DOING AK BOLTS THAT MIGHT WORK AS WELL IF MODIFED.

    THE SCOPE RAIL HAS ME THE MOST CONCERNED. i HAVE A NICE MAUSER SPORTER THAT GOT SCREWED UP AN HAS A LEUAPOLD BASE OVER THE TOP OF THE OF THE MESS TO COVER IT.

    IM LEANING HARD AT A 20 MOA ANGLED SOLID STEEL ONE PIECE SCOPE RAIL IT SEEMS IT WOULD STRENGTHIN THE RECIVER. ANY OF YOU GUYS EVER USE A ONE PIECE???? THIS IS A TARGET GUN SO IF ITS A LITTTLE HARDER TO LOAD IM OK WITH THAT. IT MIGHT BE A SINGLE SHOT ANY WAY. ALTHOUGH I SEE KNOW ADAVANTAGE SINCE THE RECIVER IS CUT FOR A MAGAZINE ANYWAY.

    I WANT A TRIGGER WITH A SLIDE SAFETY OR NOT RIGGER AT ALL AN ILL NEED A BOLT SHROUD WITH OUT A TRIGGER .

    IM SORT OF WISHING I HAD JUST BOUGHT A COMMERCIAL MAUSER WITH OUT THE TUMB RELIEAFE THAT ALREADY WAS DRILLED AN TAPPED AN HAD GOOD TRIGGER.

    I HAVE ABOUT $250 IN IT NOW ID LIKE TO KEEP IT UNDER $500 THAT DOSENT GIVE ME MUCH ROOM FOR A TRIGGER, RAIL, SHROUD , AN ALL THE OTHER STUFF. IM IN NO HURRY ON THIS BUILD.

    ILL WORRY ABOUT THE STOCK WHEN THE REST IS DONE.

    WHO MAKES THE BEST TRIGGER FOR A TARGET GUN???? ID LIKE AROUND A 14 OZ TRIGGER OR SO. IM NOT BUILDING A BENCH REST GUN BUT MORE OF A LONG RANGE BENCH FIRED VASRMINT/TARGET GUN. IT MAY LIKELY BE FORED FROMA BIPOD SO I DONT WNAT A TRUE BENCH REST SUPER LIGHT TRIGGER.
    IM THINKING THE TRIGGER MAY BE MY NEXT INVESTMENT.

    I really apreciate the offers. I have been looking at triggers all evening. Some of those set triggers are interesting.
