    Anyone know of a good source where I can get parts cheaper than numrich? I have this beautiful stock now I want to build it but obviously want to keep the price down as much as possible as the gun with basically have no value.

    Sure it can. Sarco always has great '98 receivers, if that is what you need. What do you want to build?

    I have what appears to be a 98% complete mauser stock. I want a nice 8mm for cheap money.

    Send me PM's and I can help you. Post pics here when your done!! It would be awesome w/ a short side rail or long side rail mount. A long side rail would be correct.

    Not really. The Germans were always very anal about their firearms and inspection.

    They were not produced in prison camps. Some factories used slave/forced labor, they changed to a laminate stock in mid 1941, yes as wood was scarce and the Laminate was better for wet weather. Every K98 made during the war had matching numbers on every part, barrels went through 3 separate inspections. That was their problem, they were so anal. There are instances of Lugers that were sabotaged in the manufacturing process, not K98's. For years after the war K98 receivers have been used to make fine hunting rifles. Parker Hale in Britain was famous for their Mauser sporters using wartime receivers.
