Default Old stuff that goes bang

Ther was a whole raft of them and they came into our country back in the 1940's & 1950's so its possible you can find rifles from Japan, Luxemburg, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco,Nepal,Netherlands, New Zeland ...seen a unissued Enfield MkI for $300 back about 1994, Norway, Persia some the finest mausers from there looked like they were uncrated and sent to surpluse, Portugal, Romania, Russia--BerdanII's one carbine is living up river at Noorvik AK, Siam, Serbia,Spain,Sweden, Switzerland, Uruguay

This thread just won't die, lol. Got another question. If you could have only ONE of the two, which would it be and why? Kar98k or M1 carbine. Obviously there is a price difference.

K98!! The M1 carbine is a toy in comparison.

Mauser anyone?

The model 98 is the most diversified of the two, and would probably run forever without much care. The carbine is some what limited, and an obsolete cartridge that at best an almost pistol cartridge in power and design. While the 8mm is also obsolete, but is a designed rifle cartridge that can handle a greater number of 8X57 loadings. The Carbine requires a greater amount of maintenance attention than the model 98 bolt run. The more parts on a firearm, usually more has a chance of breakage or failures to operate.

No offense to anyone, but you couldn't give me one of those Jap rifles, my Grandpa was shot by one, it took almost 54 years but it finally killed him. As for that 98 pic... That is by far the sweetest looking rifle I've seen in awhile. Is it yours?

Yes. A 300.00 Czech post war that is 1945 stamped w/ an original scope, rings and bases from Austria, post war. Still worth close to $3800.00. Scope and rings are over $1100.00. She is sweet!

BTW, I sold a matching 1942 7.7. When I showed it to my Dad, he whould not even look at the rifle.

Again, nice piece, LOVE the color of the stock.

When watching a documentary about the pacific in WWII, I find myself disgusted every time I see a Japanese victory, I guess its the personal connection. At one point I saw them celebrating the "victory" at Pearl harbor and felt like throwing my remote into the tv and calling a recruiter, yeah, yeah I know. That war's been off for a minute.

Still won't own an arisaka
