Mauser 98 parts question

I have an apparently sporterized Mauser 98. Sporter barrel in .30-'06; receiver marked "Ceskoslovenska Zbrojuvka, A.S., BRNO". Barrel proof mark looks like a "6" with a vertical line through the middle of the "6". Blind magazine and apparently shortened trigger guard. Drilled and tapped for the scope mounts that are on it; left side wing safety (that swings counterclockwise to disengage) sorta like the old FN-type but clunkier; clip slot. Mediocre walnut stock with cheap impressed checkering and white spacers. I seem to remember that some of these were imported as new guns some years back; forget by whom.

Anyway, I want to buy a spare extractor, firing pin and spring. Thinking about just ordering from Gun Parts Corporation and saying it was a generic Mauser 98. But maybe it isn't? Is there a better place to buy these parts for this gun (I'd rather have new than used)?

If it's got clip loading ears, it's almost sure to be a military surplus action.

Most all parts houses will have only used parts.

Your best bet for NEW is Brownell's. They sell NEW manufactured extractors, firing pins, and springs. ... 02&s=23461

Light weight firing pin: ... 00&s=30783

For surplus parts, here's some sources for better quality than the usual worn stuff. They "may" have better parts than Gun Parts:
(Best of them all, but you have to CALL)

If it doesn't have the clip loading 'ears' and you can't find any military markings or waffenampts, look on the sides of the barrel and/or receiver to see if it doesn't say something on the order of 'MARK X' . If it has this type of marking, it is probably an Interarms Mark X ,or 10 ,'X' being, in this case a Roman numeral. If so, check Numrich-Gun Parts, under the Interarms heading. HTH!

It isn't the Zastava/Mark X. I'm probably going to buy an aftermarket trigger too. I want one that has a wide (like 5/16" - 3/8") finger lever (don't know the proper name for the part you press). Any suggestions?

I don't need to get the trigger pull below 3 or 3 1/2 pounds, BTW.
