Hi all, as most of the people who will want to read this thread already know, I'm the happy owner of a 1915 wartime action Mauser 98 in.275 with English sporter stock, folding leaf express sights and the proper old flag safety. Sadly though this isn't the original flag safety so I need to get that sorted.
My question is, how does one go about restoring or modernising it. Short of just paying someone to do it. Where do you start, what do you do? Etc etc etc
sadly the actions been tapped and drilled for a scope, it's been done quite elegantly and I must admit does make the rifle much more usable.
Look ok forward to hearing from you all.
