    Thanks for posting and keep us informed. Heard that book Hitler's Garands may be useful if not 100% accurate like Backbone.

    Don't know where you got your info, But BBotW is an inaccurate POS! That book IS riddled with errors of about every imaginable sort! I sent Law a 1 page typed single spaced list of errors in his book (I still have my copy!) - he Never replied! The later updated edition did Not correct a single error in the original!
    Darrens book is very accurate in all aspects.

    I have hunted with a G or K 43 (of course I have mostly used mismatched rifles) since 1959 using both factory and hand loaded ammo. Never a problem, but you do not want to make the hand loads hot like you would a K98k.

    Sorry Sarge My mistake. Meant to say Backbone has many inaccuracies. My error and I apologise.

    I would suggest that you buy the revised edition. While full of errors there is also a lot of useful info and the photos are pretty good excluding the photos of Pfake rifles.
    For a better done and accurate book on the K98ks I recommend the 2 vol (eventually to be 3) set on the 98k called Karbiner 98k by Karem & Steves. For some reason they did vol 1 & 3 first and are now working on Vol 2.

    Sold at $5,125.00 plus final incidentals like $32 shipping, etc. I figured that 5K would be topped...
