    Default My new bnz45

    This is my first post here. I have a friend who runs a pawn shop. He called last week to tell me had just taken in a German 8mm Mauser, and wanted to know if I was interested. I knew very little about K98's, but I always wanted a real deal 1940's German 98. So here it is, missing the top handguard. Bolt, barrel and sight numbers match. The bolt shroud has a different number on it and is a different color. Can you guys peruse my pics and tell me if this was a good deal? He wanted $350, and I was pretty sure I couldn't lose at that price. The bore is actually in mint condition, shiney and sharp. I don't know the story behind the seller or where he got it. Any insight or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Not supposed to be a bayonet lug. It's full kriegsmodel. Killer deal at 350!
    Active rust on the buttplate?

    The butt plate is kinda rough, I was tempted to steel wool it with oil, but I figured it would be better un-molested. I wiped down the whole rile with some balistal, there were literally cobb webs on it and in it.

    I wouldn't have touched it. Especially the stock.
    Any possibility of clear pictures of the bolt?

    Rifle is at my shop in the safe. Tomorrow, I'll try to take pics of the bolt.

    All I have is my cell phone for the bolt pics, here they are, I know they suck with the flash and all, but without the flash they were dark and blurry.

    Not steel wool. Oil (Ballistol will work) with a cloth or worst case a penny or bronze wool. You can abate that rust with those steps. Other than that what's shown looks like a legit s block. More/better pics will tell us more but at 3 fitty you did good.

    I'll double down. Kroil if you can find it does wonders on rust. Literally on a clean cotton cloth it will turn orange from the rust you remove just rubbing it with said cloth soaked in Kroil. Seriously.
