    Default Thoughts on new to me IDF 98k

    This is my first IDF Mauser. It's a FN in 7.62 NATO. It has a good bore, but otherwise looks very well used. The pitting is pretty much just in the area photographed, but I will have to take it out of the wood to know for sure. Previous owner did shoot it when he owned it so there's that. I posted a thread on this rifle in the Mauser forum, and from that I learned a little about the conversion process and Israel's accumulation of these rifles, and their use in Guatemala. Any info and thoughts would be appreciated.

    Is the barrel still FN? Any markings on it?

    Here is one of my old threads

    Below are my barrel pics, note the Hebrew, date, and caliber. Hoping to find a replacement barrel, this one is a bit salty...
