An excellent example of a Gew98 rifle made by Mauser in 1915 it retains a large amount of its original colour and is clearly stamped with Imperial German acceptance stamps, on both the metal and woodwork. The woodwork is excellent with only the usual bruising. The stock has had a hole drilled in it, this is were it was screwed to the veterans wall (in its live state) as a souvenir for years. It has been deactivated but retains a working action.
A great example of a historic first world war German Mauser rifle.
