    Yeah I'm switching from a 'I wouldn't' to a 'please don't'. It looks like a straight up bolt mismatch probable vet bringback. Get a nice RC if you REALLY need to hunt with a K98k (and I encourage...

    Might be a bit of a 'high end' K98k for hunting? More pics would tell but if it's only a true bolt mismatch even with some patina it'd be your choice. I've been running a RC for nearly a decade. ...

    All in except the heat part. I'd hold off with that unless other options fails. Penetrating oil (especially Kroil) a drop or two at a time. As it works down it will pop back up.

    That's what I was thinking? Snipping tool? It's standard on any modern windows machine. Paint? Hell, hold a strip of paper over the implicating area and take another photo?

    There's a decent thread (might be a stickie) over on Gunboards about the serial sequences of the Czech/Slovak rifles. Nice rifle. I'd like to look closer at the photos in the mornings light.
