I think that:
There are tons of cheap 98 actions out there. Reasonable price Mauser Stocks & Barrel Blanks. I'm gonna stock up, and build some rifles.
Years ago I did that with Win M-70 Actions. Got a deal picking up 8 actions for $225. They made some pretty good shooters. I think with a little TLC you could do the same thing with the 98s.
