Item No.: 9057 Price : SOLD
Description :
Here is an original, WWII, German Kar98k Mauser Rifle manufactured by J.P. Sauer und Sohn, Waffenfabrik, Suhl, Thuringia in 1943. The manufacturer's code is "ce". It is chambered for the 7.92x57mm (8mm Mauser) cartridge. The K98k was the standard German battle rifle of WWII. This rifle is in very fine condition. The entire bolt assembly matches the receiver, but the stock and mountings do not. The stock and nose cap are numbered to each other. The trigger guard and magazine floorplate are not numbered. At some point, the stock got changed. The rifle retains about 80% of its original factory blued finish with some overall light wear. The trigger guard shows heavier finish wear, while the barrel band and nose cap have very little finish wear. The bolt, originally finished armory bright has turned a smooth brown. The butt plate remains armory bright with just a few speckles of dark brown. The butt plate has the manufacturer's code "dwc" which was the code for "Dr. Ing. Boehme u. Co., Werksleitung Luedenscheid, Werk Minden in Westfalen". This company also made steel machine gun belts and rifle grenade launchers for the K98k. The rifle has excellent mechanics. The bore is just fair. It is dark with some pitting. The rifling does remain strongly visible along its length. The stock is in fine condition with just a couple of small dings from use. Included is an original sling in very good condition. It is oil darkened and remains flexible. The rear keeper is installed incorrectly in the photos, but will be shipped installed correctly. Even though the stock is mismatched, this is a nice example of a mid-war K98k. Stock no. 24219
