Let me start this thread by saying that while it may look like I know exactly what I want for this build, I am open to ALL suggestions. This type of custom building is completely new to me, so this thread will hopefully be helpful in getting me going in the right direction. The receiver I have is a Mauser K98 made by Mauserwerk in Oberndorf between 1935-1938 (a dirty bird told me. ). The receiver is almost as bare as it can be. No bolt, mag, trigger, nothing except Only the barrel and front sight. So I will need to track down all the odds and ends to get this build going. I got the receiver for a pretty decent price, so this doesn't bother me.
