More of the K98-45 Mauser.

I was able to take the gun out today, and shoot it without other shooters around. She functioned flawlessly, the cheap gunshow magazine marked “COLT 45” works even better than the Chip McCormick one. I had ZERO feeding issues today.

I soldered on a rear sight sleeve, and a front sight. The finish I ended up applying was Brownell’s Park-grey. I had two out-of the box failures with the pricey gun-kote they sell. Truly a crappy product.

Next week I hope to properly sight it in.

  1. This thing is beautiful! It desperately needs a Zombie Slayer finish, though.

    i’m in the process (my kit arrives today actually) of building one of these. How is the accuracy from yours?

    • I haven’t really shot for accuracy, but it appears to be very acceptable for what it is – an open sight carbine.

      • I had every intention to integrate a J-point base onto my receiver, but for some reason decided not to. I guess I like it simpler like that.
        I did build a second one, on a receiver with a peep sight installed, but I never heard back from the owner about its accuracy.

        Will you run yours suppressed?

        if my leo doesn’t veto me, a suppressor i shall have. Shouldn’t be an issue, he’s signed off on a few SBR’s already.
