As you guys know I just bought a K98K. I picked it up today and itís pretty good. I'm a little disappointed with the stock. It was rated as good but there are some big dents in the stock including one nice size crater on the top fore grip. The bluing is in pretty good. The barrel and receiver bluing is still in good condition but the trigger guard bluing is gone and pretty rusty. All the markings though are still in good condition. The Reich eagle and serial numbers are all clear and well marked. I can't wait to go shooting with it. I'll put pictures on here as soon as I can.

I'm having some trouble with my Kar bolt. When I got it of course they shipped it with the bolt out of the gun and wrapped up in bubble wrap. When fooling around with it I clicked the safety to the far left postion. Its now stuck in that position and I can't get it back to the middle or right position. How do I get the safety lever to move again?

I got onto surplus rifles website and read over the whole thing then tried it for myself. It took forever before I finally got it right and trust me I'll NEVER make that mistake again. It was a huge pain to pull back the sear and twist the bolt shield to uncock it. I practically went through the ceiling when I finally got the bolt back into position. Thanks Scott you were a HUGE help. My sister is taking pictures of the K98 now and I should have them posted up here in a half hour (I hope).
