    Default What is this bolt for??

    I picked this out of a crate of rifle bolts, to possibly use in a K98 that has been all over the world (RC, East German rebuild, Iraqi property marks) I know it is a 98 style bolt as it works in my K98. I think it's a Gew 98 bolt, but it's a bent handle. I think it has what looks to be a royal proof under the handle, and the script of the a in the serial number, so I think it's German....

    I tried to get as good of pics as I could, but my camera sucks.

    Imperial Mauser 98 bolt from a Gew 98. I am no expert but I have a few of these. One of them came in a G98 Modified, the interwar transition from the Gew 98 to the 98k. The one that I have you can pretty clearly tell it was "bent" as an after thought and not as far as yours. Must have been near a beer break and the guy said, close enough!

    Cool. So i guess it will work in my k98 then. It has a sandblasted look to it being a former iraqi gun, but the bolt is obviously has not been to iraq, as it looks like a nice blued RC bolt.

    This bolt i found is almost in the white, so i figure it will look better.
