Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #5881a, 8mm Mauser, 29" barrel with a very good bore that shows scattered oxidation and pitting but strong rifling. The metal surfaces of this 1917 vintage rifle have turned a dull gray patina with some scattered light oxidation stains. The beech stock rates very good as lightly cleaned with partially visible Imperial cartouches, a 1/2" hole on right side of handguard, a 1/3" chip at upper tang, scattered dings, abrasions, scratches and handling marks. The cleaning rod appears un-numbered but all other visible parts are matching to the receiver. The barrel is marked "300" the markings' meaning is unknown, and this rifle includes an original steel muzzle cap that is numbered "2181" and a correct leather sling that shows scattered crazing. A very good example of a late-war GEW 98 for the military collector. (207879-186) {C&R} [Craig Brown Collection] (800/1200) SOLD FOR $1,150.00
