Re: Norwegian K98s

Almost the same, but its 19mm at muzzle (without the turned down area for front sight) M67 barrels also have a slightly different profile. The first years they were more like the M59 barrels you have, and later they were more conical all the way (slightly heavyer). M67 uses a different front sight. ...

Re: Norwegian K98s

I guess they that you have m59 barrels if they are approx 70 cm long, and 19mm at muzzle (behind the turned down area wich is for front sight) The military sold stockpiles of those barrels some years ago. The m98 profile barrels are maybe for m98 conversions to 7.62 Nato. I have heard rumors of them...

Re: Norwegian K98s

M59 are still quite common, some thousand was sold to civillians in the 60's, and the military sold some to officers some 10-20 years ago. Some guns are modified to hunting or sniper rifles. But due to restrict gun laws a lot of those guns are delivered to the police for destruction. I belleive the ...

Re: Norwegian K98s

Im not sure. Some people say 1957.
I guess all the AYR marked ammo can be with corrosive primers.
All the raufoss older than 1960 is to be considered possibly corrosive in my opinion.

Raufoss produced AYR headstamped 30-06 ammunition, both AP and ball in 1954-1956, some of it was delivered to US military, some of it was delivered Norwegian military. (1951-1953 and 1957-1960's the headstamp was RA and year 2 or 4 digit). Some years from the 1960's the headstamp was RAUFOSS and in ...

Re: Norwegian M59 mauser sniper rifle.

Looks like this. At left you see the 100m targets. To the right for them you see the 200m target area but the targets are not there then.
The red building is the building you shoot from.
Up right its 380m and a steel target.

This rifle was named M67 and had the same M98 receiver, and the same polished two stage standard M98 trigger, a 70 cm Heavy barrel (21mm at muzzle) and this ...
