Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock closely resembles the K98, semi pistol grip with right side sling hook and rack device. The stock is in generally good condition but with some dings and gouges, there is a surface depression on the left side of the stock below the rear sight and what looks like vice marks there as well. There is some surface damage likely from poor storage in racks above the trigger on the left side. It appears to be multiple dings from the bolt of the rifle to its left in a rack. . The stocks are original finish and have not been sanded.
Type of Finish: High Gloss Blue
Finish Originality: We believe this is the factory original finish.
Overall Condition: Approximately 90% of the metal finish is retained. The blue areas are unusually good and show only a few minor handling marks. Ther eis no evidence of metal prep or wear under the finish that would indicate a refinish. Our consignor filled the lettering with white paint and this can be easily removed but was left for the sake of taking pictures. In general this gun shows little wear. The markings are clear and all visible. The shortened rod is present, but cannot be removed. This is a beautiful Mauser Training rifle.
Bore Condition: The bore is bright and clean with sharp rifling
Mechanics: The action functions correctly
Box: There is no box.
Our Assessment: A great chance to obtain an important Pre - World War II German collectable that is difficult to improve on. This gun is considered to be very accurate and of course shows off its fine German workmanship. It is in remarkably good condition. A serious collector will be happy to own this rifle.
