4/24/19 - This is an original Mauser K98 made in 1941 as WW2 was heating up. The rifle is all matching and comes with a front sight hood and cleaning rod. The stock is not marked or numbered. The wood is overall excellent with no notable cracks or chips, just normal aging and use wear. The metal has patina and normal aging wear as well. The floorplate and trigger guard have browning and finish loss throughout as shown in photos. The butt plate has dark discoloration but no excessive rust or pitting. The receiver and barrel have edge wear but no major flaws, overall very nice with most of the bluing in tact. The barrel bands have finish loss and brown patina. The bore is 7/10 with patina throughout the grooves but strong rifling nonetheless. All original and smooth operation.
