a very nice G98 rifle. These great old rifles are becoming
more and more scarce now. I have sold many of these over the
last few years and have watched the prices steadily climb.
With the increasing scarcity I expect the prices to keep on
going up in the future.
it's in very good condition for the age. All numbered parts match
even the bolt.
The bolt has all matching numbers inside and out. It's rare to find one of
these with a matching bolt. The beech
stock is sound with the usual dents and dings but no splits
or cracks. The serial
numbers on the stock and handguard match the receiver. The exposed metal has turned
shinny grey or brown. The bolt and receiver are still mostly
bright polished but have started to turn grey. The bore is
excellent with good
strong rifling. I would rate it about 9
out of 10. Bolt locks up tight. Still has
the original cleaning rod. It is not import marked. The
sling is a period correct reproduction.
I have completely disassembled and inspected 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.
