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
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.

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