1903 Dated ERFURT G98 Mauser

in 8mm (7.92x57)


This is 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 you more.

This would 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.
