1939 Mauser K98 Infantry Rifle

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgHere’s a great shooter Kar-98 that I recovered a couple of weeks go. Originally manufactured by Berlin-Lübecker Maschinenfabrik in 1939, the rifle is matching numbers in it’s action and barrel. The rifle came to me as a shooter in a monte-carlo stock and I had an empty early wood set in the gun box just for this reason.

The stock all matches itself except for the end cap which is an Erma manufactured cap from the right period. So a stock mismatch but great for a shooter. You will note the “Germany” stamped into the barrel. This indicates a post-1968 import mark.

The stock is devoid of dirty birds so I expect that it is a Norwegian post-war reuse set. Still beats a Russian capture but not in the same rank as a fully matched rifle like my other one here.
