98B Uppers?

Postby adamk » Thu 11 Sep, 2014 2:18 pm

So........When will I be able to purchase a 308 upper/barrel assembly for my 98B 338 LM?

Do they marry up?

A standard barrel swap would not be easily achieved due to the way the barrel is retained in an M98 by a barrel nut near the end of the receiver. An upper conversion would be doable but not sure if it will happen.

I would like a complete upper, in theory, it would be excellent to unpinned the upper from the lower, swap to a complete upper/optic 308. Not sure it's gonna be possible....

The only issue I see with swapping uppers on the 98B is the fact that the serial number is on the upper and not the lower.
