    You mean at gun shows? Iíve only been to a small local show here in my town. Iíve never thought about going to a gun show to look for parts!

    I have had luck at the shows, ogca shows, ebay, ovms shows for parts. As a good friend of mine told me always look in the cases! Found a nice complete matching Gew98 Amberg made bolt for $75 last year. At the bottom of a parts bin.

    I used to ďsurfĒ eBay looking for mis-identified WWII medals and devices and made some real finds but I have a steady following there selling German WWI & WWII medals and badges. I guess I need to start looking at the rifle parts auctions if I have the time. Iíve already discovered that only a few sellers take the time to ID what they have & to describe their items properly and furnish clear, informative photos. The few parts I have sold there went fast.

    Default Simson lower band purchased

    I just mailed my payment for a Simson lower band for my 98b! Here are the pictures.

    It looks a bit bent. Any suggestions as to how to “true it up?”

    That leaves only the bolt to replace. If anyone out there has a Simson 98b bolt, please contact me at once. I have my checkbook in hand!
