There is an “R” and an “L” on the top of the barrel ahead of the receiver. The receiver ring is marked “7.62 / Mod. 98/ dou.45” and several marks; a crescent with a “U”, an Israeli star with a letter inside, and “a”, a complicated proof mark, and “9277”. The top of the bolt flat is marked “9277”. The bottom of the bolt flat has a Waffenampt eagle over “749”, and another eagle and “1”.
Barrel Length: 24”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with standard military sights. A triangle post front sight in a dovetail slot and an elevation adjustable rear sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are light colored heavily varnished wood. There are relatively few dings on this stock. There is a ding on the left side, under the rear sight, with a small piece missing. There are a few scratches on the bottom of the buttstock. The LOP measures approx. 13 ¼” from the front of the trigger to the back of the metal buttplate. The stocks rate in about Excellent overall condition.

Finish Originality: Looks Original

Bore Condition: The bore is mostly bright with sharp rifling. There is some mild erosion present .

Overall Condition: This gun retains about 85% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows some thinning on the barrel bands and at the muzzle. There is little age showing and only slight handling and storage wear. The screw heads are sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions but something is dragging on the bolt when pushing it forward to close. The bolt does go all of the way forward and does cock and is released by trigger pull, though the bolt closes with difficulty. The safety is functional. We did not fire this rifle.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: There is a military style sling provided.

Our Assessment: This is a very “international” rifle. We believe the lineage of this is as follows: imported into the US by Armscorp, manufactured in Germany, rebarrelled somewhere to .308 and with Israeli markings. Perhaps this is one of the K-98s that went to Israel after WWII and was used in their war of Independence. We cannot think of any other explanations for Hebrew lettering on a Nazi German rifle. In any case, this a cool looking rifle in the best caliber. This is a collector’s and a shooter’s dream.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.

Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  It doesn't have to be. The Israeli's bought the Mausers from various sources in 1947 and 1948 to help defend the then fledgling country from the Arab states. The Israeli Mausers were sold to Israel with the 7.62x51mm barrels, and would thusly be classified as fully C&R as this was its original condition from the various factories that sold the rifle to Israel. 03/09/2012
        A:  Thank you for your question. We are not willing to risk our license on this interpretation. From our perspective the original barrel was 8mm and is now 7.62. Thanks. Lew. 03/09/2012
