Why dont you just go shoot the Mauser you have or get a commerical/sporter one? Being historic doesnt keep me from shooting my guns.. (.. If it did, Id never beable to shoot! All mine are old and "historic"
Well...I'll share a "little secret" with you:My K98k is one of my best rifles...maybe even the best one.I shoot it often, but since all parts are original, there are very "little chances" to get an original replacement for all of them-THERE IS NO REPLACEMENT IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT ORIGINAL.I know, a rifle has been mado to shoot.What kind of rifle is the one which is left behind in a safe?The answer is:A useless one or it is not a rifle!
Regarding the sporter/commercial:You're damn right!Maybe I should follow your advice.But I want a modern version of the K98k.Why?Because that rifle fits perfectly my hands and makes me feel like it was made for me...that why I so happy to go Germany,visit Obendorf and meet the Mauser staff...I want they to built my new K98k from a M98 action...and this time...let me say it...MONEY DOESN'T MATTER-I'll have that rifle, I want it to be made in Obendof by Mauser.
