In excellent minus all matching very sharp condition, we have a very scarce early production 1940 dated 243 code (Mauser Borsigwalde) made K98k Mauser Service Rifle. The rifle is all matching with an excellent bore and the stock is Eagle/L marked for Luftwaffe issue. The cartouches on the laminated stock are still fairly clear and crisp. The blue on the metal is quite nice and the bore is mint. The date/code combination of this rifle is a very difficult one to locate and any serious collector of 98k’s knows what a real find this rifle is. This is very much an example of one of those rare sought after codes that is irresistible to own in this solid condition.
