Super rare Mauser 1941 dated G33/40 with ZF41 scope. A shortened and lightened version of the K98 rifle. The G33/40 was issued to Alpine ski troops. Fitted with a ZF41 scope it would have been issued to a marksman for short distance sniper duties.
The G33/40 was only in production for 3 years, from 1940-1942. It was produced by Waffen Werke Brunn, Brunn. It fired the exact same 7.92mm round, and had the same Mauser 98 action. However, that is where the similarities end. The G33/40 had several different parts that were not matching with the K98. These included: the bolt, stock, cleaning rod, sight hood cover, upper hand guard, barrel bands, sling, and even the bayonet. This example of the G33/40, was made in 1941, and bears the maker's code dot 1941.
This is live example and is not for sale. However we thought you might like to see some photographs, as it a thing of beauty and a very rare rifle.
