    Just pulled this baby out of storage again for display, can any tell me if a standard k98 sling will fit this it looks kind of naked without one. Also the safety is missing again will a k98 fit.

    Neat FN crest. You're not showing us enough of the rear of the bolt to see why there is no safety catch, otherwise it's a very common part. You'll need to learn how to field strip the bolt, this can be very awkward if the safety is in the wrong position, you'll hear a weird clunk, instantly realize something is horribly wrong and you'll need the finger strength of a circus strongman to get it apart.

    Need a pic of the bolt by itself, and of the rear of the bolt.


    Any common rifle sling should work from the looks of it, but NOT the german 98k variant as it goes through the stock and has a unique keeper "frosch".

    And of course you should find the right bayonet/scabbard, and frog. 1920's FN contract? Don't remember seeing any, but I'm not much of a 98k expert, I just know a little about the Third Reich variations.

    I agree, if the bolt safety is in the wrong position when you try to dissemble it, it can be really hard to do. Here's a link to do it nice and easy. (I use the bottom side of a desk instead)
