I have a problem with a very nice 1944 dated M38 Turkish Mauser. I originally bought this rifle 15 or so years ago. I put it in the back of my locker, never fired it and, frankly, forgot about it until a few months ago, when I decided to look it over again and check it out. Although everything looked great, the bolt closed on an 8mm field headspace gauge. I checked out several other bolts to see if the bolt was the issue, and it wasn't. I took the barrelled receiver to a local gunsmith who said that the headspace was out .016". He wanted more to repair the issue and relocate the rear sight (to fit the handguard after barrel was adjusted) that the rifle is worth. I am now not sure what to do with the rifle. I suppose I could part it out, but the listing, tracking, packing and mailing process is a hassle. The stock is sound, is all matching but bolt, the metal is nice and bore is good. Would appreciate any practical tips for what to do with this rifle...
