Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Israeli K98

#1 Post by vandle » Mon Aug 21, 2017 6:11 am

I picked this Israeli Mauser up a little while ago.

The condition is ok for a rifle that was used a little by the IDF

Its a Brno 1945 all matching. I cant find any dirt birds so Im assuming its post war manufacture.
Its not a bad shooter but needs some experimentation with loads to get the best out of it.
I managed to find a Israeli K98 Bayo to go with it.

Thanks for posting.
It is interesting that these rifles have markings placed in diff areas of the receiver from whom ever modified them to 7.62x51mm. They are fine shooters at long range.

Hi Rapidrob

You have raised a good point. From all the pictures i've seen there seems to be no directive given on how to mark the receivers, only the information. It seems it was left to the individual on the end result.
It seems there was no instructions/standard to adhere to.

That one is in nice condition compared to many I've seen. I always wondered if there were any around that missed the conversion to 7.62, and still were in 8mm.

Nice rifle! Big fan of the K98 - having one in .308 would be nice.

The NATO loadings with 145 gr. to 150 gr. Bullets have been the most accurate In the three Israelis that I shoot. The best was the 150 gr. sp. I.M.I. rounds in the blue and white box, but they have been gone for some time, I believe. Great fun shooting these rifles.
I was R.L.E.V.M. on our old forum.

There were some. I have heard that all/most of those went to Australia.
