Item No.: 9020 Price : $1,250.00
Item : WWI, 1918 GERMAN MAUSER KAR 98 CARBINE BY ERFURT
Description :
Here is an original, WWI, Kar 98 Mauser Carbine manufactured by Erfurt in 1918. 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 carbine is in fine condition. It retains about 70% of its factory blued finish. There is some finish wear overall on the high points of the gun. The wear is a bit heavier on the trigger guard, nose cap, and front sight. The bolt and butt plate remain armory bright with some speckling of brown patina. There is a little light pitting in areas on the magazine floor plate and the lower band. The rifle has an excellent bore and mechanics. The stock is in fine condition with the usual small dings and scratches associated with use. The rifle is all matching including the stock. Included is a scarce, original muzzle protector with a flip-up cap. The included leather sling is a reproduction. Stock no. 24143
