Yes, John is a real gentleman. Thanks for the warning on the Japanese Forum. I've seen enought examples of rude behavior.
The question is allowed but I don't like to guess at prices. What I would do (and have done often) is put both the rifle and stock on Gunbroker, separately, with plenty of GOOD photos and a carefully worded complete description. Be sure you put the word MAUSER in the title for both. Make the minimum bid what you would consider to be a small loss and do NOT have a reserve price. Others, like me, filter out all reserve auctions from searches.I hope this type of question is allowed. If not, let me know.
Sorted through my parts and have found all of the metal needed to complete the trigger guard assembly. The only part I am unsure of is the follower. It may not be of the correct era.
Now I need to know a fair price for the completely assembled metalwork and a fair price for the stock.
Any help would be appreciated.
Gunbroker is my favorite acquisition and disposal site. I just put a Nicaraguan VZ24 clone project rifle on there to begin this evening.Bill,
Have done as you suggest for the barreled action on GB. I took some good pics of it yesterday before the rain started. I'll have to wait for the rain to stop before listing the stock.
With a short bayonet lug it might be an M1924b stock made from a M1912.After revisiting this thread I realized that a "mystery" stock I was given and subsequently used to build a " faux" std model for hunting may in fact be from a 1924b: short bayo lug, beech, bolt takedown, 3/4" shorter than a k98 stock. What ya'll think?
