Can anyone please link me to somewhere in the US that I might order a dimensionally correct Karabiner 98K replica??? I'm tired of only finding "rare vintage" versions made in Sweden and such when I search.
I would MUCH rather not buy a Swiss remake... Plus, all I ever find online are seized rifles on sale for a whole lot of money. Plus, I'd prefer something with te dimensions and features, but a larger caliber.
Rare vintage Swedes? Swiss remakes? Someone is jerking you around.
The Mauser (among other makers) K98k is a German military main battle rifle chambered in 7.92 x 57mm Mauser (8mm Mauser) that saw its main use during WWII. They are readily available for sale all over the world as military surplus rifles. Sporterizing one, to include a caliber change, is no great shakes for a qualified gunsmith. In fact, the vast majority of Mauser M98 'hunting rifles' available for sale began life as military rifles.
If you're looking for a new production rifle 98 Mauser BillM has given you the link to the only manufacturer I know of who's making them today.
