what bothers me is links posted with no explanation whatsoever.

In today's day and age, you can't click on anything without a barrage of popups and spam.

Not in any way. It is a good use of an old receiver or rifle that may not have anything left of value in it.

I have had several built up this way in various calibers and they are tough accurate rifles.

using such big of pictures that its hard to scroll over to read and follow his sentences.

If he buys em, he can mess em up......besides they are M48's not K98's......


It is sad from a history point of view, but to each his own.

Personaly I dont care about people sporterising there guns better then getting melted down to slag or cut into scrap. unless of course its something really rare and one of a kind.

I only care in that it's incredibly short sighted and doesn't serve to save much money.

25 years ago you could buy, and cut up a very decent Krag for instance - they were everywhere and cheap. You might even do a great job at it, but now that sportered Krag is worth $200 tops, and left alone it would be worth $1200+.

How many people cut guns that were "common" and not special 50 years ago, only to have their children or grandchildren inherit those guns only to wish they had been left alone. I know there are 2 in my safe exactly like that.

It's your gun, do as you please, but I still think you should just buy a damn commercial action and build a gun if that's your thing.

So, last year when FAC had Mauser actions for $27 each.....

If one were to buy a dozen or so of these receivers and get a deal on a dozen or so Parker -Hale M-85 stocks and buildup several rifles such as the one pictured, would this be a travesty?

Mauser actions are a dime a dozen anyway if you know where to go, there is no need to destroy a good rifle and a piece of history.

I have bought 2 set of 5 for $250. u-fix-em from CIA, and I was able to save only three. The rest had bad bore, very worn muzzle, broken stock, missing parts, bent parts and bad headspacing. So I can see them doing it. I have seven action that I am working to sporterized now. I like to fix things up and when I bought them, I was going to fix up as many I can fix, which is only 3 out of 10. Plus it was my rifle to do as I please. You may not approve of this but you don't know what condition was the rifle was in before he started.

The only thing that bothers me is someone saying a Krag may be worth something. I put one away 25 years ago, maybe I better look at it.

I thought about this thread when I saw an M48 at a funshow today. It looked unissued, but had a cracked handguard. The tag said $110. I was very tempted to scoop it and make it a project rifle. I also saw a sporterized K98 that had the original 8mm barrel, and a custom stock. A well done conversion. No, it doesn't bother me when it's a quality build. The ones that make me cringe are the Bubba hack jobs. Ah well, to each his own.
