    Kar98a Firing Pin

    So, I'm on the hunt for a firing pin for a WW1 Kar98a. My question is whether or not a firing pin from a WW2 98k would work since they are both long actions? If not, could someone point me in the right direction.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Assuming it's Germanicon, a 98K firing pin should work just fine. Aside from the shape of the handle, they have essentially the same bolt.

    It's a 1916 Erfurt. I figured a 98k firing pin would work, but I wanted a second opinion. Thanks for the reply.
