The 1933 Standard Modell rifle, manufactured by Mauser of Germany, is a commercial rifle based on the G98B rifle. It precedes, and is the basis for, the K98 Mauser of WW II that began production in 1938. These are also sometimes called Banner Mausers, as they have a stamp of the Mauser banner on the receiver ring.C & R Eligible These rifles are great pieces for the Mauser collector, being pre-WW II production rifles; and make amazing shooters. They are also great for collectors due to their rarity and also for re-enactors as they are almost identical to the K98 at a fraction of the cost.Officially designed for export and German security guards, it was used by the paramilitary (SA) and (SS) branches extensively. Export variants were used in South America, Ethiopia and China. This particular lot of guns came from a surplus lot that had long been stored in Ethiopia. According to reports, the Ethiopian Empire bought 25,000 Model 1924 and Model 1933 rifles and carbines, and fielded them during the Second Italio-Ethiopian War.These rifles appear to be arsenal turn in rifles from that conflict. About the Rifles. - This particular lot of rifles came to us from a surplus military arms arsenal in Ethiopia where they had been stored for decades. They are in original turn in condition which for military contract Mauser's means that that they are well used as most surplus Mauser rifles are. That means dents, dings, scrapes, gouges, discoloration and possible small cracks in the stocks. It will also mean bluing wear ranging frm a little to a lot depending on the rifle, and we have even seen some minor surface rust on a few. Overall they are not beauty queens but virtually no original turn in condition is Mauser is. They have simply been carried and will show use and character.
No Mauser collection is complete without the addition of one of these rare Banner rifles. .... Don't Miss This.......C & R EligibleImportant - As noted above these are arsenal turn in rifles and while we have done a dry function test here before shipping, the rifles have not had the bores cleaned nor have they been checked by a gunsmith. As with all surplus firearms the rifle should be thoroughly cleaned before firing. Also, please be sure that the bore is clear and unobstructed. Finally, a good rule of thumb with any surplus is to have your local gunsmith do a safety check before attempting to fire.
