In very sharp condition we have a very clean and well marked all matching byf 42 coded,1942 production Mauser Oberndorf made K98k Service Rifle. This rifle is factory original in all respects and is completely matching. It came out of the woodwork and was a WW2 vet bring back. It has not been duffle cut and the bore is excellent. The stock is very crisply cartouched. This is one of the last rifles that Mauser made with all milled parts and it is the classic mid war example of the Mauser 98k.
Finding a mint matching 98k rifle is much harder than finding a nice all matching Luger, many were brought back after the war but most of those rifles were turned into more useful deer rifles, by modifying or converting into sporting rifles. Today, finding a clean example such as this is not an easy thing to do as most have been in collections for years and rarely surface.
