Item No.: 9341 Price : $1,895.00
Item : FINE, WWI, 1916 GERMAN GEWEHR 98 INFANTRY RIFLE BY DANZIG
Description :
Here is an original, WWI, German Gewehr 98 Mauser Infantry Rifle manufactured by Danzig in 1916. Chambered for the 7.92x57mm (8mm Mauser) cartridge, the Gewehr 98 was the standard German battle rifle of the First World War. This rifle is in fine condition. It is all matching except for the two trigger guard screws. the rifle retains more than 90% of its original factory blued finish on the barrel and stock furniture. The barrel has nearly all of its finish with the nose cap and trigger guard showing a bit more finish wear. The receiver, bolt, and butt plate remain in their original armory bright finish with a very light, fine sprinkling of brown patina. The rifle has excellent mechanics and a good bore. The bore is frosty with a couple of pits. The rifling remains strong along the barrel's length. The stock is in fine condition as well with a scattering of small dings and scratches from use. The stock is numbered to the gun and the crown proofs remain strongly visible. There is also a Bavarian proof on the belly of the stock. Included is an "Ersatz" (substitute) iron muzzle protector. It is regimentally marked for the First Jäger Regiment. The sling is a very well made reproduction. This is a very nice example of the Gewehr 98 in great condition. Stock no. 24975
