5/2/19 - Listed here, we have the most complete K98 assembly we've yet to come across. Starting with the rifle, this rig includes an excellent 1940 dated Mauser K98 with '42' factory code on receiver. The rifle is all matching with exceptional bluing, showing only minor finish loss on the front sight band and a little more on the edges of the receiver. Excellent stock with a nice cherry hint to the wood, and the name of either the German soldier who carried it or the GI who captured it scratched neatly into the wood. All numbered parts on the rifle match, including the stock and butt plate. Smooth action and a minty bore. But this assembly is especially interesting because of the assortment of original accessories that are included. The rifle itself features a nice original sling with 1941 manufacture date. It also has the original muzzle protector with clear waffenamt. The original K98 action cover is included, and these are very rare and seldom seen. It has a waffenamt and '41 date with 'hck' maker mark. An original K98, dated to 1940, with its original matching scabbard is present. The bayonet is in exceptional condition, and includes the 1940 dated leather frog. An original and extremely rare K98k grenade launcher set is part of the package, with the matching black leather carrying case. One original (inert) and two reproduction German rifle grenades are included, with the original carrying bag that features a '42 date and waffenamt. Perhaps the rarest of all the accessories are the four stripper clippers of specialized wooden-projectile, low power, 8mm rifle grenade launching rounds. These clips were intended to be carried in the special pockets sowed in the top of the rifle grenade carrier bag. The accessory list is completed by an original K98 user's booklet and an original "Denkler" private purchase K98 manual.
