a very 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.
it's in very good condition for the age. All numbered parts match
except the bolt (which is not unusual).
The bolt has all matching numbers. The beech
stock is sound with the usual dents and dings. The serial
numbers on the stock and handguard match the receiver. There
are a couple of age checks next to the buttplate but nothing
serious. The exposed metal has turned
shinny grey or brown. The barrel and middle band have about
85% of the original blue left. The trigger guard/magwell
plate are about 60% of the original blue. The bore is
excellent with good
strong rifling. I would rate it about 9.5
out of 10. Bolt locks up tight. Still has
the original cleaning rod. It is not import marked. I have
disassembled this rifle and found it very clean with no rust
in the hidden areas.
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.
