My K98 has all matching numbers and is complete excepting the cleaning rod. Haven't spent any time to get one because they have typically been very available.

I think the stock makes the rifle way more interesting!!
I'd leave it just like it is...

I can honestly say, I've never seen a stock like that!!
Makes a guy wonder what the whole story behind it is...
Like they say, "If this gun could talk..." :D

I'll just about guarantee is has nothing to do with a one eyed soldier. Germany might have been drafting kids and old men but they weren't drafting one eyed kids and old men!

Every army had left handed people that shot from their strong side. Armies don't go around slicing and dicing rifles, they just tell you to shoot it left handed!

My FIL was a WW2 vet and would put a tall tale on you in a split second! We never knew whether to believe half of what he said, and when he started telling war stories all bets were off.

Actually at the last they were taking anybody they could get, including people with missing eyes and limbs. It was about that time that they ended being the well disciplined army that had originally swept through Europe and much of Russia, and I'm sure when it was to the point where all they were concerned was survival, that you could get away with anything that didn't endanger your comrades.

Still, I agree it is probably not the right story, but it is interesting to contemplate if it were.

I'm really curious about that stock. Just a thought, but could it have been a modification made because the person using it was used to shooting with their right eye, lost site in it, and so trimmed down the stock so they could use the left eye?

Just a thought.

Something along that line was my guess too.... This is an older thread, since then I found another k98 with a horrible action and nice wood... swapped stocks and sold the beater with the cut down stock to get some of my money back... the good action is now in a good stock and rests in my herd :)
