A surprise acquisition!

Article about: Can anyone please comment on the viability of this rifle as a functioning weapon? I've never encountered a hybrid like this before, and I'm curious to know if this was potentially put togeth

    As this weapon is of an obsolete calibre, am I right in assuming this is legal to own without license or deactivation?
    Correct Very nice, and very unique piece indeed!

    Thanks for showing it

    Gotta be cool for a freebie out of the old school cuboard, better than a catapult or slingshot!

    Cheers Danny, and glad you like it! I'm really curious to know if it was potentially used in this configuration now, and how viable that is. I've seen rifles with replaced stocks, but only using similar stocks for the same kind of gun.

    Great find, Mat! Very interesting rifle. All I ever brought home from school was homework!

    Luke, you're a Mauser man! Do you know exactly what kind of stock this is? K98?

    Indeed a K98 stock.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade is correct. It is a K98 stock. Any markings on the stock?

    It has '799' on the stock disk, I think... it's difficult to read, but I think it's that. I can try confirm that tomorrow Luke, if that helps ID it at all. Other than that, the stock seems to be free from any markings except for what looks like a rectangle?
