In decent combat salty condition we have a 100% correct all matching textbook example of an extremely desirable SS Contract bnz44 Gusen Concentration Camp built K98k Rifle. This rifle came out of the woodwork in Amarillo, Texas in 1994. It has a mint bore, some corrosion on the metal that needs cleaning but its the real deal. The stock is rough and poorly made, probably a rejected item that has been used, you will not the incorrect cutout for the bolt and the overhang of the buttplate at the keel of the stock. It has the “circle V7 ” Gusen inspection mark and bears no Heer inspection stamps or cartouches. These roughly made rifles are rarely pretty but they are some of the most sought after of the K98k service rifles among collectors. I can think of at least a dozen collectors who will have to have this very rare SS issued rifle.
