    Kar98k barrel condition

    Hello fellow milsurfers,



    I have been offered to pick up an all matching S/243 Kar98kicon with a dark bore. What can be expected of this bore condition, should it do alright?

    I'll bet that bore shoots just fine for military standards. We've seen in past bores that were as new didn't group well and dark skeptical bores shot little tiny groups. If it's in your possession or you can take it out then have a go and see? Can you try it out? If not, I suspect it should shoot well with at least jackets.
    Regards, Jim

    Agreed, take ownership immediately and without fail. Then deep clean, repeat, repeat if not clean yet again. It just looks properly dirty. Then if all else checks out, put some rounds through, it. The bore should be good then.

    Try some (20-30) downloads. Say 40gr 4895 and a 150gr bullet. Shoot, clean repeat for 20 rounds. Good luck.
