Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgI have two other Mauser K98’s, one here and one here. The first one is a sporterised one i saved and put back into the correct stock. The second one is from a Czech factory and is all matching except for the lower stock. I wanted one of these rifles, mid-war, German factory and no need for the word “except” when describing it. Through a friend of a friend, this one appeared. A Sauer made 1943 K98, no issues, all there, lovely.

1939 Mauser K98 Infantry Rifle

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgHere’s a great shooter Kar-98 that I recovered a couple of weeks go. Originally manufactured by Berlin-Lübecker Maschinenfabrik in 1939, the rifle is matching numbers in it’s action and barrel. The rifle came to me as a shooter in a monte-carlo stock and I had an empty early wood set in the gun box just for this reason.

The stock all matches itself except for the end cap which is an Erma manufactured cap from the right period. So a stock mismatch but great for a shooter. You will note the “Germany” stamped into the barrel. This indicates a post-1968 import mark.

The stock is devoid of dirty birds so I expect that it is a Norwegian post-war reuse set. Still beats a Russian capture but not in the same rank as a fully matched rifle like my other one here.

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is my DOU marked Mauser Kar-98 Infantry Rifle in 7.92x57mm caliber. It was manufactured in 1943 by the Waffenwerke Brunn., A.G. in Czechoslovakia. It’s all matching including the wood so I am pretty happy to have it.
