    Default Any Advice Extremely Appreciated

    Now I wouldn't necessarily call myself someone who always goes for the best bang for his buck but I have an extra stock laying around and figured. I might as well give saving this bnz 41 a go. It's 250 (I'm aware I most definitely overpaid) so its not gonna kill me to buy but I'm just curious how salvageable it really is. The pitting looks similar in depth to my 1903a3 so I consider myself an optimist but I obviously can't tell bore condition or the rifling. What do you guys think? And if you have any advice on the restoration I'd absolutely appreciate it. I'm not trying to bubba it or anything like that but I doubt that it'll exist for as long as they can if I don't do something about it. At this point it's more of an emergency restoration over anything. I wouldnt even consider the option if it was in any state but it's current.

    To be honest, I think that is too far gone.... maybe just remove any active rust and oil the metal, but then hang it on the wall.

    I'm afraid that may be true, honestly I know I'd be losing money but I'd consider rebarelling it just to save it

    You could put an acid on it to remove all active rust which would at least kill the cancer and then throw it in a stock and have a cool cheap ss gun

    I like how the seller went out of their way to highlight the markings with grease pencil, just so you’d know you’re getting a real beauty queen! Lol!

    Maybe I'm blind but I don't see any runes on it

    Honestly they didn't have to oversell it to me. I tend to appreciate any k98 in military configuration. Though this one is gonna need more than enough love

    Third photo, on the barrel, about four O' clock to the SN, half of it is engulfed in rust.
    Do not annoy the gods, for they are an irritable and vengeful bunch.

    Wow, I did something similar that turned out interesting but this one looks like it would be quite a project. Stock up on Kroil.
