gew 98 ?
I have a Gew 98 that I purchased in a pawn shop several years ago. It is a Spandau dated 1900 with a four digit serial number 17XX. It is all original matching with exception of the magazine plate and roller coaster rear sight which goes to 200 meters. However, each of these was clearly arsenal restamped to match. The stock also does not match. It is not import marked. Can anyone tell me the history of this rifle as it applies to the number of production for that year? I think I read along time ago that 1900 was the first year that the Germans changed to the 8mm but I'm not sure about that.
