Item No.: 10112 Price : $950.00
Item : EARLY, PRE-WWI GERMAN MAUSER GEWEHR 98 INFANTRY RIFLE, 8MM
Description :
This is an original German Gewehr 98 Infantry Rifle manufactured at Waffenfabrik Mauser in 1906. It is chambered for the 7.92x57mm (8mm Mauser) cartridge. The Gewehr 98 was the standard German battle rifle of World War One. This rifle is in good condition. The barrel retains some blued finish, but the stock furniture has turned a dark brown. The receiver has some light pitting and has been cleaned, leaving a brown/steel patina. The bolt is mismatched and has turned brown. The rifle has excellent mechanics. The bore is poor. It is dark and crusty, but the rifling is visible. A good scrubbing will help but this will never be a match rifle! The stock is in fine condition with just a few small dings from use. Included is an old US Model 1907 leather sling in good condition. It is not marked. This is a good early Gew.98. Stock no. 29317
