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
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.
