Product Information

A rare, completely original First World War German Kar98a (Karabine Model 1898) with all matching numbers. It has the correct imperial German army acceptance stamps, is dated 1916 and was manufactured by Erfurt. It is fitted with its original early type 1 Walnut stock that doesn't have the bolt take down washer or finger grip grooves. These features are only seen on pre 1917 examples. Every single part is original and carries the last two digits of the guns serial number "80". This is a remarkable find when you consider that this Kar98 is 101 years old. The top piece of wood work does an old battle scare which adds to the character of the gun.

In 1916 all available weapons were urgently required by German forces. The Kar98 was used by the original German "Storm Troopers" during First World War trench raiding parties. Being shorter and lighter than the standard issued Gew98s, it was much better suited to the confines of close quarters trench warfare.

They were also used extensively by various German units and regiments including the cavalry and mountain troops with many seeing active service again during WWII, and for those reasons are now becoming increasing hard to find.

The bore is still in incredible condition with strong rifling throughout. An FAC with the correct variation for 7.92mm is required to purchase this carbine.
