I have a WWII Mauser rifle that shoots great and I am considering converting it to a more light-weight stock for hunting purposes. Family friends are telling me that its a collection piece and that I shouldn't convert it. The Mauser is a K98 bolt action rile with matching serial numbers on all components and Wehrmacht emblems and Nazi eagles stamped on all components. Atop the receiver is stamped 'bnz'. The rifle has an excellent wooden stock and shoots well. Any recommendations or information on this rifle. Email: KYRIEELLIS 5/12/1997, 0:00 น.

Considering the amount of mausers out there that don't have matching numbers and the price they are available at, it would be silly to ruin a collectors piece. You can convert any old non matching rifle for use as a sporter. If the trigger guard and nose cap are milled not stamped, then the above advice goes double. The stamped ones were made after 1941 to speed production. I would hang on to it, or sell it (to me) and buy another gun to sporterize and still have money left over. K9BNF 5/12/1997, 0:00 น. It's your rifle but I collect a few of them and from the description you give, well I would keep it as it is.
K98's with all matching serial numbers and the waffenampts are hard to come by these days. Is it still in 8mm cal? Stock in great shape as you say it sounds like a war bring back prize. If nothing else, find a Mauser collector in your area, get the best price you can and buy another one at a gun show and convert it. Don't destroy a rare collectors item.
Buy another one and convert it to.308 and put on any stock you want. I have done that to several K98's and VZ24's John.K9BNF.Milwaukee, Wis Milwaukee Police Officer Retired.

If you like the Mauser action enough that you'd like to have a sporter; buy one of the cheap mis-matched rifles coming in from Russia, or one of the barreled actions being advertised by a number of wholesalers, or an already sporterized/butchered rifle from a pawnshop.
There are plenty of Mauser 98s out there that have already been modified enough to have lost any value to collectors as 'as-issued' military rifles. Preserve the good ones. -- Arne Gustav Carlsten Flagstaff, Arizona Chomh da/na le muc. Bbemory, 0:00 น.
There is much information about WW2 German weapons out there- much of it is in excellent reference books such as Hitler's Garands and Backbone of the Wehrmacht- however, these are only guides, and not everything in them is correct. Case in point is 1945 date K98k production numbers. It is widely recognized that Backbone of the Wehrmacht is incorrect in it's total production figures for 1945 manufactured 98k's. Below is the best I have seen it put into context: (information used with author Eric Davidson's permission, my additions in orange).
