    Default Kar.98b Parts Database

    When the 98b imports came in from Albania during the 1990's, it doubled the known 98b in this country, but more than that, they often came in thoroughly mismatched but with correct "98b" parts. One can suppose that when the Albanian's received them from the Soviets they were in an original state, not mismatched, but during service they developed this mix of parts and theoretically the right parts could be in this country, but only on different rifles from that batch.

    Going from that assumption, knowing many collectors own these rifles, I will start and maintain a database on them. I will start with the one rifle I currently own, but if you have an Albanian imported 98b and are willing to help others match up their rifle or are seeking to find your rifles stock, post it and I will add it to this thread (doing so does not obligate you to any exchange):

    Loewe,
    I have a couple 98b bolt bodies, do you want that information as well, or just stocks?

    It can be anything 98b related, it is a long shot regardless, but if one match occurs it will be worth it.
