WWII German dot 1945 k98 Kriegsmodell 8mm Mauser rifle. World War II German maker code and manufacture year “dot 1945” on receiver ring. Eagle WaA63 firing proof on right side of ring, faint... but there. This was the maker code for Waffen Werke Brunn in German occupied Czechoslovakia. Not an import, No import marks, no peened-out proofs, and a matching bolt to boot. Rifle serial number 2949. Excellent, near Mint condition.
All metal parts are correct and matching to the rifle (see pics), including the bolt. Original matching kriegsmodell stock. Bolt is matching to receiver, serial number 2949, but the bolt shroud is numbered 5375. Cocking piece and safety are correctly unnumbered. The bolt shroud looks original to the bolt assembly to me, which is not unusual for these late war rifles. All original metal finish, mostly blued with an unfinished trigger guard and floorplate. Has not been refinished. Correct WaA135 "svw" maker marked kriegsmodell triggerguard. All blue at 100%. Excellent.
Beautiful yellow/gold laminated stock with cupped buttplate. Stock channel is correctly unnumbered, handguard is numbered but not matching. Handguard has the same wear as the rest of the stock and looks like it's also original to the rifle. Stock is solid with no gouges or cracks, no duffel bag cuts, really excellent. Bore is in Mint condition, strong lands and grooves... looks unfired. Action extremely tight. Traces of original cosmolene throughout the rifle. Collectors have debated whether the dot 1945 code was produced before or after May of 1945 at the Waffen Werke Brunn factory. To this day there is no answer to that question. There are no Czech Rampant Lion proofs on this one either, which are found on the vast majority of these dot 45's. This is a tough to find k98 Kriegsmodell rifle in really exceptional condition.
