SOLD - Rare German K98 Sniper Rifle - Long Side Rail
3/12/18 - This is a super rare, all original K98 Long Side Rail Sniper rifle, coded BCD 4, with original scope. The gun is all matching and correct with blued finish on the receiver/barrel/bolt/safety and phosphated barrel bands. LSR sniper rifles had a thicker left receiver wall milled at the factory to accommodate a long side rail scope base, which was attached with pins and screws. In addition, they had a checkered buttplate, a special modified sniper safety lever and a stock, specifically inletted for the scope base on the left side of the receiver. This rifle has all of the above characteristics and all the proper proof marks/waffentamts on the gun and on the scope base. The finish is all original and rates in the 90s. Bore is very good and the stock is excellent with a strong cartouche on the right side. The scope is all original but not matching to the gun. It has some wear/discoloration to the finish, but has great optics and attaches to the base nice and snug.
