Update to this Auction!
A customer called and requested some information regarding the bolt. Upon further inspection of the bolt we found that the bolt face has a ring of pitting from ammo containing corrosive primers. Also, it is noted that the blue was worn on top of the receiver ring from a scope mount. This is not
the case, the blue on the ring is fine, however we did not previously mention that there are a few small spots of pitting on the ring. The 6th photo has been replaced to show a better picture of the receiver ring and a photo of the bolt face has also been added.
This is a sporterized Mauser 98 G33/40 bolt-action rifle, re-barreled in .270 WIN. The G33/40 action is a later model "dot" code 1942 action. The serial number on the action is #6772. The bolt is not serial numbered to the action, however it is a G33/40 bolt which is hollow and flat on the stock side. A tang and tang mounted safety has been added to the action (see photos). The tang-mounted safety works fine but when moving it to the fire position from safe, it slides and does not have a positive click. The action still retains the original military-style safety, however it is non-functional. There is a release for the floor plate in the front of the trigger guard and the gun features a bird’s-eye maple stock, with a European-style cheek piece, and nidner grip cap and buttplate.
The rifle has a 22" barrel. The bore has crisp rifling and is in excellent condition. The action is smooth and the bolt locks-up tight. The trigger measures at 2-1/2 lbs. pull. The barrel and action have been reblued. The reblue job looks good and blue is 90% or better. There are a few small scratches on the barrel and the action and some of the blue is worn on top of the action where scope mounts were previously installed (see photos). All these spots are minor and overall the metal is in very good condition.
The rifle has a front raised-ramp, dovetailed sight with a flip-up, dovetailed rear sight mounted on a block on the barrel. The rear sight can be adjusted for elevation (see photos). The top of the action is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. There are front and rear swivel studs screwed into the bottom of the stock. There is a small chip in bottom of the stock in front of the rear stud (see photos).
The bird’s-eye maple stock has a really unique patten to it and looks sharp, however it is cracked
on both sides at the front of the action, just behind the barrel (see photos). The stock could possibly be bedded to fix the cracks or of course the action could be restocked. With the unique look of the bird’s-eye maple, you may want to try and save this stock, it's really a nice looker! The nidner grip cap and buttplate are in very good condition with just a few minor
spots of surface rust (see photos).
Overall this rifle is in excellent condition mechanically and in very good in appearance. Serial #6772. STK. #11264.
This sporterized Mauser would make an excellent deer gun. The flat shooting .270 combined with the legendary Mauser action is a combination that's hard to beat! Just a bit of stock work and this G33/40 is ready to take to the field this season.
