Default k98

So was at a gun show last weekend with a few guys from work. we all had about 250 cash each on hand and all wanted new toys. was looking for a rifle or shotgun when we came across a guy with a few nosins and k98(brno yugo and turk) so the guy was kind enough to cut us a deal since we all wanted one. any way long story shot we got 2 k98's and 1 m48 for $500 bucks. picked up a box of surplus ammo and that was that. still havent been able to shoot it since all we can find are indoor ranges. and we really want to go out to the desert and shoot more then 50yards. tell me what yall think. the first 2 are on the tail gate at the gun show. the second 2 are since i got it home added a no drill scope mount and made a paracord gunsling.

Mausers rock, and it sounds like you guys did OK at the price you paid. Two years ago you could have had all three for about $150, but Mausers have gone way up.

AimSurplus has a great deal on the Romanian 8x57 usually. It is magnetic, so can't be fired at a range, but can be used in the dez if you have an approved spot.

This left me scratching my head. Why would a gun be magnetic, and why would that prevent you from firing it at a range?

Ahh, Google is my friend. You meant the ammo - steel core ammo tears up the range back-stops, I get it. Pardon my ignorance.

Nothing to pardon, I should have been more specific. I was answering that post on my phone so was cramped for space/time.

Most of the ammo for 8x57 is not steel core, but a nickel and steel jacket,

Here in CA if it sticks to a magnet, it does not matter if it is steel jacketed, or cored. Not gonna be able to shoot it at a range.

OK! The rifle itself is an M48 in the pics not a K98.
