7/2/18 - This is an all matching and original Mauser K98, made in 1944 at the Waffenwerke Brunn factory. The bluing does not have much actual finish loss but does have patina visible throughout the barrel and forward portion of the receiver. All numbered parts match. Stock is correctly unmarked. There is a very thin surface crack near the buttplate, but it does not go through the wood more than a quarter of an inch at the deepest point. There are also a few ding marks on the receiver. Rifle has an excellent bore and comes with a cleaning rod.
