Manufacturing date unknown, this German K98, was refurbished in Yugoslavia post WWII as a M98. The rifle has been fitted with a 7.62mm barrel and more recently has been fitted with a long side rail and a Swarovski Habicht 4 scope . The bore is in excellent condition with bright shiny & sharp rifling, metal work is blued and retains 70% of its finish. Matching numbers throughout with the exception of the bolt, woodwork is laminate with no fractures, but some transit marks. The rifle comes with a bayonet, clips, replica leather ammo pouches, rearsight cover and sling.
Metal work is good with no damage, but some loss of finish. Receiver markings are typical for a Mauser M98 and consist of model, serial number, manufacturers crest, proof marks manufacturer and inspectors stamps. The receiver and the bolt cycles smoothly without any excess movement.
The bolt has been gauged for the correct headspace and firing pin protrusion. Bolt face is good, and has the customary proof marks. The bolt cycles, feeds and extracts without fault.
The barrel is a five groove model with an excellent bore. The rifling is sharp, bright with no obvious wear. The muzzle is undamaged and metalwork has 60% blued finish.
The furniture is typical German laminate and is in good condition with no fractures but does have some transit marks. Woodwork is fitted correctly and nothing is loose.
