    Well good to hear from you Bellson, I was afraid you'd gotten involved in one of the many forest fires in your area lately. Good to hear from you.

    mtdew, let me know when you start another, I've got plenty of trinket parts you might be able to use, just let me know what you need and when you need them,and I'll shoot them out to you. You'd need to do some sorting out sense I don't recall just what I do have left, but there yours if you need them. I'm sure there's stuff you can use in that pile, and what you can't,,pass them off to others.

    Did a little more to it yesterday.
    1-Polished bbl and inside of sight base with scrubby pad.
    2-Level bbl in vise.
    3-Measurement taken from my other K98K's
    4-Temporary set screw to hold it in place & soft soldered.

    Now all to do is clean up the bbl and sight bases and blue.

    Its nearly done. I couldn't find a correct rear band that wasn't pricey, so I got the Israeli post war band. Its the same size and has the sling loop in the right place, but it doesn't have the groove around the circumference. I'm gonna try to cut a groove into it by hand. Wish me luck! This is the one I have: Lower Band, Cast Steel (98K, Israeli Post War) Gun Parts | 945710B | Numrich Gun Parts
    And heres the correct band.
    twa, you wouldn't happen to have one of these laying around would you?

    I think I will spread my spare mauser parts out and photo them and put them up on the freebie thread to see if anyone needs anything.

    mtdew whats say you just PM me your address and I'll just shoot it out to you , I don't need anything for it,,it's yours. Glad to see it get used.

    It's got a little bit of Buba on it but some gentle tap tap and some 320 wet and dry with oil and 600 afterwards should clean it right up. Not sure who the Buba was that did the bugger marks,not to bad though,,Buba's are everywhere I guess!!

    I hate butchers,,,,,

    Looky what was waiting for me when I got home yesterday. It should clean up real good. Thanks to twa the rifle will look a little more correct. As soon as I get this part polished up and re-blued it will be finished. Too bad that the bubba marks are right on top of the waffenampt stamp, but no big thing. twa is a real great guy. He sent this to me free, didnt even charge shipping.
