Yes, it’s the wrong bolt for what the rifle was originally when it belonged to the Nazis. However, it’s totally original and correct to how it left the Russian factory after they captured it. I’ll keep my Russian captured K98’s as Russian captured examples, and find separate original and uncaptured Nazi examples to satisfy that itch. I’m still learning and interested to know where all these parts came from originally though. I appreciate everyone‘s knowledge and help with that


    Refreshing to hear that.
    I have a particular interest in Norwegianicon capture K98kicon's which have several decades of use and changes post WW2 and its all part of their continuous history as well.
