    Default Hi from England

    Hi all,

    Just bought my first K98, very tough to find many for sale here in the UK.
    I shoot often, mostly pest control, fox and deer.
    It is more restricted here, so I will not be able to start a collection of K98's! sadly.
    I am looking forward to learning as much as I can here, its a fascinating rifle.

    And another newbie from England!
    Looking for a K98 to shoot and enjoy to go with my LE No4 and as you mentioned not many for sale here.
    Already learnt loads from the forum - the pictures are a great idea for comparisons!

    Send me some good ale or scotch and I'll send you parts to build a K98, wishful thinking I guess, but welcome. My family of Scottish immigrants miss the old country.

    Quality alcohol we do have!
    I'm at the other end of the country though - South of London.
    Thanks for the welcome. - Should be off to look at a couple of K98s this week....

    Bolt has force matched numbers
    Stock has non matching serial, and 6 35 41 date code.
    Rear sight has the side rail for ZF41 scope.

    Great to see there are some other UK members here.
    Really wish I had done more homework before buying this Rifle, although it is shooting great with my homeloads.
    I don't feel too bad about what I paid for it, but it would actually be better with a non matching bolt than this bodged force match.
    I have learnt so much on here in just a few weeks, and am deeply engrossed in the Books I bought here recently.

    Interested to hear from any UK members, who may have advice on collectors fairs etc, in the UK that are worth visiting?
