Not sure now many they got, but I know my State (MN) has a few because they were gifts to the MN Guard when they do a troop exchange every year, there's a few at Camp Ripley. MN and the Norwegian army do this every year. And they did convert many to 30.60. They also did some in 7.62 Nato. Me and a buddy bought some of the NOS barrels that were Norwegian and I used one to replace a crap 8mm barrel on a beater k98. Not sure if the Norwegians just refurbed captured 98's or if the srarted building all parts including receivers.
