German 98 Muaser Sporter 8X57 Mauser Rifle

Lot # 171

S/N: NFF Early German 98 Mauser light hunting rifle. The 98 action could either be a commercial or converted military action. It is not numbered or marked. It has light engraving and a solid old blue finish that is about 95 % to 98 complete. The action works well and is not drilled or tapped for a scope. It has a 24 inch tapered round barrel without step. There is a stepped full length rib ending in a contoured front sight. The top surface of the rib is checkered (fine slots) to reduce glare. The rear sight is a standard European 2 leaf flip sight. The underside of the barrel has an attached mount for European type swivel. The front and rear swivel are missing. The bore is about very fine with strong complete rifling and no pitting. The bolt and trigger guard appear to come from a German military rifle. They are either numbered or military proofed. The barrel and action are set into a early European style stock. It is a solid decent looking stock. At one time the stock has a decorative extension lower tang. The extension is missing. There is a very nice engraved butt plate on the stock. It has a flip up door. The butt is drilled inside to old four rounds of ammo. - C&R Book# 1896
