Default Repairs for my Czech 98K Mauser

I purchased a Czech 98K Mauser a couple of months ago and have finally had time to tear it down and clean it before I go to the range.

After disassembly I notice the barrel is pitted on the outside and when cleaning the barrel it looks pitted inside and needs to be replaced. Does anyone know where I can get a new barrel and have it installed.

My suggestion is to take it to the range and shoot it before considering a re-barrel. Some of the old battle rifles are surprisingly accurate even with barrels that look like damaged sewer pipes. This may be one of them.

I agree. Many of my old milsurps shoot great with barrels that should have been trashed years ago.

What kind of shape is it in otherwise?

Honeslty if it still shoot striaght and works I would leave it alone like the guys above me said. But if you really want something new I would talk to a local competent gun smith and see if he can make you a new barrel.

I am not sure if it is an original or remake.

The side of the reciever looks like an old sewer pipe, but not as bad as the barrel. I have had a lot of old military rifles, Enfields, Moisn Nagants, 03's, but this is my first Mauser and I was hopping I did not get screwed. The gun shop owner here is a hit and miss type of guy. SOMETIMES he will work with you but not to often, even his regular's have second thought's at time.

I should have taken pictures of the barrel and reciever but did not think about it till it was in my safe. When I get back I will take pictures of it and post them.

Use some old #9 and a bore snake, you should be just fine.

I finally had time to tear down my Czech Mauser and found that the bottom of the barrel was pitted in some areas and it is worse in other areas. I have never come across a rifle like this in this kind of condition, any suggestions or comments? If I get time I will dig it out of my safe and post some pictures.

I agree with CA357, just shoot it.

Is it in 8mm or 7.62 NATO?? Alot of the Czech 98k's are Israeli guns.

You should post some pics so we can drool.
