The Mdl.98 was made in a large ring and small ring Rec. That is another issue. You simply need scope bases for a Mdl. 95 reciever. You will need the bolt handle turned down or add a custom low bolt handle. The work will have to be done by a gun smith.
I would have the muzzle and throat checked. The head space should be gauged before you spend money on a scope.

A smith cuts off the old one and wields the new one on. He wanted see through rings so he could use it for close shots. The metal has since been woodland camo'ed to match the stock. Rifle is in 6.5x55. '95 and '96 action are almost identical. The stock took a bit of inletting to fit correctly. Weaver style bases work great.
The boyds looks great on it. Just made the gun huh.

That is a fine-enough looking shooter and a truly great cartridge. No, it isn't collectible becasue it is sporterized. Frankly I personally wouldn't put alot of money into it though -- buy more ammo and targets!
