This rifle has the AMBERG 1917 stamp on receiver but on the side of the
barrel beside the rear sight is a prominent S/42K along with P-74 marks.
(I found some reference material that indicated S/42K indicated 1934
production at Orbendorf.)

In an effort to cure firing pin protusion problems on a Turk Ka-Kale
and I think a generic K98 rifle, I robbed the bolt shroud/sleeve and the cocking piece to put on the other rifles which fixed their problems.

Now I find that the Cocking piece replaced from the Turk rifle will not screw
onto the AMBERG 17 bolt nor will the cocking piece fit on the firing pin
of the AMBERG 1917 rifle. Very slight interference exists for both.

Kind of funny that the parts swapped in one direction without problem
but the traded parts do not fit the donor gun.

The AMBERG 1917 has been shortened and lightened ( sporterized )
but I find the prospect of carrying a 20 in barreled 6 pound gun appealing
so I want to get this gun shooting again. SO....

Where can I source cocking pieces and barrel shrouds that will probably
fit and what exact model do I call my gun if it helps for others to know
what gun I have to better predict if the pieces I need will fit ?

I could send the bolt to let someone test if the shrouds/sleeves screw
into the bolt and I could send the firing pin so they could test whether
the cocking piece will fit on it or I could just get a new firing pin.

I think I saw where Numrich has new reproduction firing pins for $26
dollars for some K98s but I dont know if my gun is a generic K98.
The bolt is bent down.

Any supplier suggestions would be welcomed. Thanks

I have determined from research that since the K98 was not adopted
until 1935, the fact that my rifle was made at AMBERG in 1917 then
reworked in 1934 That this rifle must be one of the Kar.98AZ or Kar.98a
versions. This might explain why the bolt shroud and cocking piece
do not interchange perfectly with the Turk KaKale bolts.

SO, when I am looking for new cocking piece and shroud parts, do I need to specify for Kar.98AZ and Kar.98a rifle bolts ?
