MAE vs FN rifles
John: I have found that generally, 98 bolts will work in the 35/36. However one has to check the headspace as usual with this sort of part replacement. I have a Mle 1935 with a WaA 140 98k bolt installed by the Nazis (so the vet's family claimed!).....Also the triggerguards on the guns made from WW 1 German parts are slightly longer than the FN made trigger guards, due to placement of locking screws. Argentine 1909 ejector assemblies will fit and function on these guns as well.
I have seen and handled several of the MAE and FN made guns that the Nazis worked on...apparently they used whatever fit to maintain them, or some Banjo Dueller had the same inspiration after the war...
