Default my Gew 98 project

well, in march of 09 i started a little project, i bought a Mauser gew98 mod-1916 in 8mm;
for $75. I'm making it my hunting rife.

it was sporter-ized, the stock was painted black (ugh).
here is a pic what it did look like.


well i striped the paint off the stock, and stained it; making it look like this


now I'm putting a scout scope mounts on it, but I'm having trouble finding an affordable scout scope, any suggestions on where to find one?

That's a weird looking mauser.


If I was you I'd get the ATI stock....since I like the futuristic look....but I'd read review first.

Good luck with your build! Keep posting pics. You might pick up a decent used scout scope from ebarf or GB, if you look around.

I did one a couple of years back with a beat up Turkish Mauser from Big5. Large ring 98.

I went with an Aimpoint Comp ML3 (2MOA), but can also mount a Meopta 6x42 which is in Leupold QRW rings. Stock is a cheapie Hogue overmolded, painted with Aluma Hyde 2.

Just looks weird to me. Old has nothing to do with it.

Have you fired it yet? How does it shoot? Do you get a decent cheek weld, or is it more of a chin weld?
