Couldn't agree more.

Maybe in the fullness of time we'll all naturally progress to more rifles. We'll know we've arrived when there's just a couple of smgs and a support weapon and everyone else with rifles. Fire and movement might actually work then too.

Ditto, would be great if we could have the ratio more like the real life deployment.

Do you think Warren would reduce the cost of his Lee-Enfield's/K98's if folks could club together and ordered in bulk ? :D

If anyone doesn't want the hassle of ordering K98 stocks from abroad, I just found these....

Complete with stock bands. Hopefully might get a few more people to try it.

My progress so far:

“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

Boshman, looking good so far!

Jeks, good luck with your conversion. Best advice is take your time over it and it will all just fall into place.

stock has been bored and trimmed to fit working parts, set in and , magazine fitted and shaped. all working at the moment, just have to order and fit trigger guard and sights.

i'll post some photos soon. looks good if i say so myself, just a bit out of place with out the trigger guard.

alll the best of luck and patience to others attempting this.
