10/3/17 - This is an all original and matching Mauser K98 from 1944. The original finish is about 98% throughout but has oxidation on the finish like it was stored in a humid environment. This might clean up with a bit of steel wool but not positive. Correct waffen H on right side of stock but it's faint. There is a surface crack in the same area, as well as one on the underside of the stock. Stock may have been cleaned up a bit or have had a thin layer of varnish added postwar. Handguard is correctly numbered and matching. Minty bore and smooth action.
