a pretty nice G98 rifle which are becoming scarce now. I
don't really know a lot about these but I'll describe it the
best I can.
Overall it's in very good condition for the age.
This is a WWI arsenal rebuild. The rear band, buttplate and
rear sight are not matching. The magazine and the bolt are
arsenal force matched re-stamped. All of this appears to be
common with rebuilds. The wood is very sound
with the usual dents and dings but no cracks or chips. The stock disk
is not marked.
The metal has all turned to a silvery grey with minor
amounts of blue left on the barrel. The muzzle has been
bored back about one inch. Rifling is strong but is is dirty
and has light pitting. I would rate it about 6 out of 10. Bolt locks up tight.
Has a nice reproduction sling of the correct style. It is
not import marked. The pictures will tell you more.
Should be a good shooter
with the proper ammo. The standard 8mm military surplus ammo
and most new manufactured ammo you find on the market will
work fine. I wouldn't try any hot high pressure loads in it. The pictures will tell
be great for any Mauser collector or WW1 re-enactor.
This gun must be
shipped to a FFL or C&R holder or can purchased in person.
