This is what the barrel looks like now.  It only needs the bluing to protect the carbon steel.  Bruce

Bruce, I have to say I am blown away by the barrel.  I look forward to seeing photos of the finished gun.

As for California, I wouldn't live there, don't know why anyone else does.

Thanks King.  I have the material to blue it but have been holding off because it looks so nice and shiny right now.
 
This 8mm thing is more of a love of the K-98 and the Auto Mag. 
 
I think I am going to use a blackened frame with fully-checkered, brown, polyurethane Pasadena grips.   
 
I will move the Luger style cocking-piece from the carbine onto this gun.  Kind of a fantasy gun.
 
Max is making another Luger style cocking-piece for the carbine, from scratch.
 
Thanks for the interest.....Bruce Stark

I uglyed her up real good.  She looks to be all business now. 
 
 

The rear peep-site I used was from a French "MAS" Model 45 .22 trainer rifle.  The sight is marked out to 150 meters or about 1.5 football fields.  I sweated the rear sight platform off of an old Fluss-Stahl  Krupp-Essen, Model W625, .22 trainer rifle barrel.  The front sight is NOS K-98 Mauser with the grooves for the sight hood.  I copied the design for the "light pipe" front sight.

Cheers
