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.
it's in very good condition for the age. All numbered parts match
except the bolt (which is not unusual) and the buttplate.
The bolt has all matching numbers. The beech
stock is sound
with the usual dents and dings and has some nice curl in the
butt area. The exposed metal has turned
shinny grey or brown. The bore is very good with good
rifling. I would rate it about 8
out of 10. Bolt locks up tight. Still has
the original cleaning rod. It is not import marked.
The bad stuff: (see
There is some pitting where water
must have puddled under the wood in various places. Nothing
active or deep enough to cause concern when firing it. The
stock, being beech (or birch), has two age checks. One in
front of the ejection cutout and one in the lower wrist.
Both are sound. There is a chip out behind the bolt ramp
which seems to be fairly typical of these rifles.
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.
