Product Information

A WWII German K98 fitted with a ZF41 scope and mounts. This K98 is unusal by virtue of having no obvious Nazi markings or designation codes on the receiver. Why there are no markings is inclear, however a very plausible explanation is this that it was not issued to the German military, but instead to a paramilitary group such as the SS. This can be further supported by the lack of German military Waffen acceptance stamps normally stamped on the right side of receiver. These paramilitary groups (including the SS) were not part of the regular German army but were an elite force controlled directly by the Nazi party, and because of this didn't receive standard issued weapons, often being issued captured, reworked or secondary unit firearms. The barrel, bolt and floor plate are all marked with the Nazi makers code 749 and/or number 1, this was only used by Gustloff Werke from 1940 onwards. The foresight does not have hood cover slots and dates this K98 to circa 1940. This may also indicate them as the maker? The initials "HS" or "Hf" are etched in the under of the wood work forward of the magazine base plate.

The scope and mounts are contemorary copies and carry the correct wartime Nazi codes and markings. K98s that were fitted with the ZF41 scope were used by a German companies sharp shooter.

Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked, stripped and dry fired.
