G98/40

Recommended Posts

I picked up a g98/40 thats been sporterized it has a sporter barrel on it marked dwr and is in 8x57(who made these) but the barrel is 26 inches long and of a heavy sporter style with an excellent bore . What type of thread do 98/40 have small ring ,large ring or something different i was thinking of rebarelling this to a 6.6 swed or 7x57 but dont know if you can get barrels for this thing if not i was thinking of sending it some where to have it cut down to 23 inch and have it turned to lighting it up any information on them would be helpful thanks buck98k

Buck i have 2 of them they can be rebarreled they are 12 tip just like a mauser but they are between a large ring and small ring for size so you can turn down a large ring bbl and pick up the threads and finish to fit it they have a .445 cut horizontal through the bbl for bolt nose to slide into.

 

also i think you are very close to me if i remember there are a few other guys very close too if you want to get together sometime to meet them
