8/19/20 - This is a very nice example of a pre-World War II K98 Mauser banner "Standard Modell" rifle. These commercial standard models were the first true K98 style Mauser rifle that was the forerunner for all later wartime production rifles. The top of the receiver ring is stamped with the "MAUSER" banner logo with the left side of the receiver marked with the "Crown over /B, G, U and N" commercial proof marks over the commercial serial number "B41233". This particular rifle is all matching and original, with some bluing loss on the top of the receiver and around the muzzle end of the barrel. The stock is in good condition but does have a chip on the underside. Bore has strong rifling but does have heavy frost throughout.
