The whole re licence process for the k98 is stressful, costly, time off work, meetings trying to explain that the mauser is a obsolete caliber not used by any army in this present day not an easy task Blackadder being able to prove that I used same in comps in the last 3 years was definitely an advantage .

If ever the number of successful renewals of classic rifles with calibers over .308" was examined at Garda HQ, then perhaps one day, an advisory list of exceptable old & obsolete classic calibers, maybe published as part of any revised commissioners guidelines.

It helps show a level of commitment as someone involved in perhaps the oldest target shooting disiplin of them all.
Good reason is membership of a target club or land permission for hunting.

Hard fought battle snipe considering you have had the Mauser licensed for years previously.

As one who has a restricted caliber rifle licensed I can say with certainty that I did meet with some very informed people.

It really is the case where you use your firearm for practice and competition, you have good cause and reason and you enjoy your sport present the evidence and make your case.

Competition is key

What a total farce this was, as well as a waste of money for many people.

I'm sure that both the Lee Enfield and the Mauser rifles would have just as much of a following, personally I think Springfield , Mauser and Lee Enfield were the best engineered.

It may be that on this thread we are talking about THE k98, but we love all those old rifles.

Excuse my ignorance but what the fu*k is TIA

Not totally sure what you mean about a 'big deal'.

Please explain what you mean.

For example, ANY WW1 or WW2-issue German/Axis Mauser will be classed as a restricted firearm in the RoI because it is 8mm calibre [actually 7.92, but generally called an 8mm].
