1916 Dated Waffenfabrik Oberndorf

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. The best thing about this one is that all numbered parts match. The bolt appears to be force matched by grinding off the old number and stamping it with the new one. The wood is sound with the usual dents and dings. It has the typical flat Mauser stock disk. The receiver area has turned to a grey color and the barrel has basically no bluing left. The bore has good rifling but is a bit dirty with light pitting. I would rate it about 6 out of 10. Bolt locks up tight. Still has the original cleaning rod. It is not import marked.

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.
