Product Information

This is a fascinating German Gew98. It was manufactured in 1915 by DWM for the Imperial German army and would have seen active service during the Great War. The original proof markings also have additional reworking proofs between them. In the 1930s when the Nazi party had come to power and were preparing for WWII this rifle was converted into a K98, the barrel was shortened, rear sight changed and wood work modified. Post WWII it was put into service with the Israeli's and was then re-chambered for Nato 7.62mm. This rifle would have been used by the IDF (Israeli Defence Force) to protect Jewish settlements from Arab attacks and to carry out guerrilla operations against British Armed forces in Palestine. It is somewhat ironic that this G98 was captured by Allied forces during WWII only to end up being used in anger against them again in the 1950s and 60s!

Deactivated to current specifications with moving bolt and removable magazine. This rifle can still be fully dismantled with the exception of the bolt.
