1916 Dated V. CHR Shilling SUHL G98 Mauser

in 8mm (7.92x57)

 Rare Contractor


This is a very nice G98 rifle which are becoming scarce now. This contractor is a rare one and hard to find in any condition.

 Overall it's in very good condition for the age. All numbers appear to match except the bolt which is not unusual. The stock is very sound with the usual dents and dings. The handguard has a crack running down it but it has been glued and is solid. It has a nicely marked stock disk. Did a little research but not sure, might be 60th Reg., 10th Co. rifle number 158. The 60th regiment was part of XXI corps during WWI. The metal has turned to a silvery grey with only trace amounts of bluing on the barrel. The bore has good rifling but is a bit dirty and lightly pitted. I would rate it about 7 out of 10. Bolt locks up tight. Has a nice reproduction sling of the correct style. Should be fine to shoot with the proper ammo. It is not import marked.

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.

I have a very nice bayonet that would go with this rifle perfectly to complete the outfit. Click here to get more info.


This gun must be shipped to a FFL or C&R holder or purchased in person.
