Article about: Hi Welcome to the forum very nice find you have it should restore nicely if done right, cant you put it in your car wrapped up well and take it home. Best of luck with your restoration. Dave
I'm new to this forum, so a quick introduction is well on it's place.
I wont reveal my name, because I live in the Netherlands and guns are not that legal.
Well I'm 24 years old and a History teacher with most the interest in WW2 so I wont need any help with the war itself haha.
But I could use some help with restoring my Mauser K98k.
Here are soms photos I took. I have no clue in what products I need to use or which procedure I need to follow.
Shooting the gun is not the goal. Just having a nice looking/ clean gun, where I could read all the stamps in is the goal.
Thanks! Which oil can I use for the metal parts? Or is WD40 with Steelwool good enough?
My girlfriends grandfather found it in his land as a farmer after the war. Her father showed me 2 weeks ago, so now I have a nice restoration project. I think I'm letting it deactivate it, just to be sure I will not have any troubles here
The only problem is that he lives 200km away and I dont dare to take it with me..
