The K98k was the standard-issue German rifle of WWII. It was a direct descendant of the WWI Gewehr 98 Mauser rifle. Chambered for the 8mm Mauser round and fed by a 5 round internal box magazine, the K98k saw action on every front of the German war effort.
This particular rifle is a bolt mismatch gun. The bolt is complete and matches itself, while the rest of the gun matches itself. The rifle was produced early in 1939 by J.P. Sauer und Sohn and is a very nice example of a pre-war rifle. Note the fine cosmetic machining on all parts.
