    No C stocks used in Remington production run. The original stock sounds correct. You must go slowly as you will end up with a $300.00 beater. Good luck.

    Are you near Susanville, CA? If so, drive over to Lassen Community College and get the gunsmithing instructor to fix the rifle. Not expensive and will be done right. Wait for school openings.

    You might call IMA on the East Coast. They have plenty of UK contacts and might be able to locate grips. Good luck.

    The rifles were, indeed, fitted with a complex insert. Perhaps 250,000 rifles converted after WWI. I understand the Brits used the same system to re-condition MG barrels. After WWI Italy was in...

    CMP sold off barreled-receivers many years back. Not too much $175?? or so. Probable the barrel matches the receiver. But at this price you should be looking at a mint gun and all correct parts. ...

    Looks like a parts gun. Put together with what the seller had in his parts bin. Badly overpriced, stay away from this one.

    Chamber

    Is your chamber nice and bright and shiny? Lots of Milsurps have beat up chambers. Try to clean up the chamber and try to buff it up slightly. Should help.

    I think a few came out of Spain, like 1960?? Ammo always hard to find. You will see them at the big gunshows. Not big sellers at all. The Berdan I is rare or is the Berdan II the rare...

    You are correct. The importer does not do retail sales. They are around, call around to find a good price. All are pretty good condition. Story: The Brits captured an Italian Army of several...

    You will need to buy another complete pistol. The receiver is the pistol, legally. No simple solution.

    Bolt

    The bolts were never a problem for the 03. High number or low number not the issue. Just have good headspace, that's all.

    Hoppe's No 9 had a bad reputation for removing nickel plating on guns. Guys would soak a barrel in Hoppe's and find all of the nickel gone.

    Just re-read this string. I am not referring to strength of the 1945 Kar98k. They are usually very strong. But the 1945 production has its own collector fans. Shooting the rifle MAY devalue...

    They bought small ring Mausers at the end of the 19th century. They stayed with the small ring all the way.

    You are right in wondering about 1945 production. Most of the very late 98's are/have collector interest. I would not be looking for a 1945 shooter. Personally, I would be looking at a pre-war...
