So, does anyone have more info on this?
I mean, how do I replace the normal elastic sling from a Dragon K98 with the real leather BGT's sling?
I haven't ordered it yet, because this is what makes me reconsider.

They're a great addition to a Dragon Kar98. You need to remove the old sling and pop out the plastic piece that represents the bitter end of the sling. I've found a narrow screwdriver blade though the slot where the sling enters the rifle stock will pop the part off the butt with a little care. The buckel that holds the sling to the rifle is included with the sling. I hope this helps you.

Great, that answers my question completely.
I removed the sling!

Now were did that tutorial on weathering the stock go...
(Seriously, I can't find it anymore, it was a tutorial where you scratched the "wooden" parts and sandpaperd it.)

Although I don't have a clue what N° 0 sandpaper is.
Fine grain sandpaper?
Unless there's more than one No_O, it's a medium coarse sandpaper. Equivalent to "80 grit"/ CAMI 80 - http://www.sizes.com/tools/sandpaper.htm

If you've done 25mm, then 1/6 scale (305mm) will give you much more to work with. das soldat jumped right into painting, and has become quite the talent.

I haven't really "done" 25mm, I did one for my nephew because he is ussually high on sugar and therefore unable to keep his hand still. :rolling

So re-painting the rifle shouldn't be all that hard?

Thanks PD. I'm lucky I can even paint. I'm legally blind in both eyes, and my glasses are very thick to compensate.

And yes, repainting the rifle is very quick and simple. You just need to look out the the metal parts, which should be painted over anyways. I just use the sandpaper and give it a brown wash then paint the metal parts. In about 5-10 minutes, my results are great.








I used a similer process on the MG42, but by layering coats of spray paint on the metal (black then gunmetal) and the wodden parts (Light brown then dark brown)
