Original, Very Rare and Highly Collectible German / Czech Model 98 Mauser K-98 Rifles. 8mm, 5 Round, Bolt Action, NRA Surplus Good Condition, Laminated Stock, Cupped Buttplate, Winter Trigger Guards... All the ones that we have seen have also had the coin style engraved inlay in the stock. This group of K-98 Mauser rifles were manufacturered at the Waffen Werke Brunn factory in Czechoslovakia which was producing for Germany under Nazi control and occupation at the time. The factory later gained fame as the Czech Brno plant. K-98 rifles made at this factory originally carried the DOT manufacturers stamp on the receiver but transitioned to SWP sometime in 1945. This group of rifles is highly desirable to collectors due to the limited numbers of total rifles produced with these stampings as well as the unique characteristics and marking that these rifles carried. They are a piece of history and we are proud to be able to offer this exclusive small lot. About the condition. These rifles are in original surplus turn in condition and will show the typical wear that you would expect on 80 year old surplus military rifles. As such, expect typical digs and dings as well as bluing wear. Also many rifles will be missing their original sight hoods. Some may have a sling or a piece of a sling but much like getting one with a sight hood getting one with a sling will be luck of the draw. None that we have seen come with a cleaning rod and in fact we are told that the DOT / SWP 1945 model stocks were not drilled for rods. All have the unique DOT style stamped front barrel band. Bores are dark from storage and will vary as is typical with surplus and as such we make no guarantees in terms of bore condition. It may be pristine or it may be a sewer pipe but eiter way is luck of the draw. Overall this is a pretty nice group of rifles by surplus standards. We would call them NRA surplus good overall.We do offer a hand select that will get you the best of 10 cosmetically. Please know however that we will be hand selecting from a group of guns that we have already classified as NRA Surplus Good which avaerages about 60 % of like new condition. As such we would encourage you to have realistic expectations. Also know that we do not grade for bore condition. Grading bore condition is highly subjective and is also impossible to do without thoroughly cleaning the bore or sometimes even putting a few rounds through, and we do neither of those. As such, we do not factor bore condition into our grading process.
