  1. The K98k Mauser Forum
    I recently acquired this k98 at an estate sale. It’s marked S/27 which I’ve found means it was manufactured at the Erma facility (correct me if I’m wrong, please), and it’s obviously a Russian capture and seems to have all original matching SN parts. I’m new to this forum so I’m not sure what...
  2. The K98k Mauser Forum
    Hello, I'm considering purchasing this K98 listed locally to me, and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on it. The rifle has been scrubbed of most markings, including any date or manufacturer code and has a new serial stamped on the left of the chamber and barrel. The rifle has a...

    Hello all, This is my first post on here. I have a wartime production dou.45. The rifle is a vet bring back with no import marks and in mostly matching form. Bolt is matching to the receiver and other unnumbered parts are correct and have matching wear. I say mostly matching because the front...

    Good evening folks, I've had this mystery Mauser in my collection for a while now and I thought I'd throw it up here to see what people might think could possibly be the origin of the rifle. I found it at a local gun show labeled "Mismatched Mauser". It is chambered in 7.92x57mm, stock is...

    So I came across these on craigslist and was wondering if they were legit, they are in the same area and were posted at the same time. Thanks
  7. The Military Mauser Forum
    I’ve dug around in the forums looking for info and it looks like I have Gew98, possibly 1917 or 1918 based on the stock(?), that went to Poland and was scrubbed. I’m curious to know more about it and I’m sure a few of you can look at it and instantly guess at what it has been through. Happy to...
  8. The K98k Mauser Forum
    First time posting because I never have been in a position like this and am curious about y 'all's opinion. I found a very Bubba'd K98 with AX 41 markings at a price I couldn't say no to and was curious how far gone is too far gone? Would it cost more in parts to restore it than its worth? And...

    Greetings, I'll admit I picked up this rifle at auction with not much knowledge of Norwegian k98s. Personally, this is the only one I've seen for sale, so I didn't wanna miss out and not bid. It is all matching with original German numbers besides bolt. Rechambered in 30-06 post-war and Coastal...

    Whats the best way to store leather slings - I have so far had mine on the rifle but can see some of the leather breaking up - especially at the sharp bend at the front band. Trying to keep an even temp and humidity in my safes. Any advice??
  13. The K98k Mauser Forum
    Picked this up from a older gentleman who says his dad brought it back from ww2, I didn’t really overpay no matter what it is, and I don’t think I really plan on selling, I’m just interested in what I have here exactly. My understanding leads me to believe this came from Waffen Werke Brunn in...

  15. The K98k Mauser Forum
    Hello all, A relative of mine picked up a lightly sporterized, mostly matching K98k for cheap a few years ago that only had the stock cut down to the barrel band and he's been trying to restore it ever since. The catch is that the K98k is a dot 43 with a 'dot' marked hardwood stock and...

    wanted to see what information i can get for it. It's in a archangel stock and I know that ruins the value but for a shooting rifle and not a collector piece I think its ok.
