Item No.: 10334 Price : SOLD
Item : WWI GERMAN MAUSER KAR 98 CARBINE, 8MM MAUSER, 1909 MFG.
Description :
Here is an original, WWI, Kar 98 Mauser Carbine manufactured at Amberg in 1909. Adopted in 1908 for troops whose duties made the long Gew 98 awkward, the shorter Kar 98 rapidly became the most popular rifle of the German Army. By 1918, over a third of the Model 1898 arms in service were carbines. With some modifications, this would become the standard rifle of the WWII German Army. This rifle is in good condition with a mismatched bolt. There is very little finish remaining with just a trace of blue in protected crevices. The majority of the rifle has a steel gray patina with some brown on the nose cap, trigger guard, and bolt handle. The butt plate is about 75% brown. The rifle has excellent mechanics. The bore is dark and a little frosty, but it has strong rifling along its length. The stock is in good condition with a number of small dings, gouges, and scratches from use. The included sling is a good quality replica in fine condition. This is a great rifle for a reenactor. Stock no. 30173
