Gewehr 98 Rifle

C.G. Haenel dated 1917

Non Matching in 8mm



This is a nice rifle even with the mismatched parts. These are getting scarce now in any condition.

The wood on this one is in good condition with the usual dents and dings, no cracks or splits. The receiver has turned grey but the rest of the metal has about 75%-80% bluing left. The bore is very good, about 8+/10 with strong rifling and no pitting. The bolt does not match the receiver but all of the parts of the bolt match each other. The stock is numbered but only matches the rear band. The guard, magwell follower and magwell plate match but not to the receiver. The sling and detachable swivel  are modern reproductions. There are no import marks.

Overall a very nice, clean rifle that would be a good shooter and an excellent addition to any collection.
