Hello everyone! I’m young and inexperienced with guns. I’ve shot maybe 2-3 guns my whole life. I love watching Hickok videos and this is where I learned about my Kar98K to begin with. I’m really excited to learn more about the gun, such as cleaning it, maintaining it, and just overall becoming more comfortable with this gun. I would appreciate any and all help with understanding the gun. My grandfather was in the 10th mountain division and brought the gun back from WW2 and it has been in a gun case ever since. Sadly he passed away in 2008, but he left the gun for my grandmother who then has given it to me. Why? I have no idea as I’ve never even owned a gun, but hey here we are and I’m so excited to finally fire it once I learn how to get it cleaned and running.
