Posting some pics of a '34 Mauser Banner that I got some 22 years ago. Came without the bayonet lug. All matching, nice walnut stock and it has the beautiful deep bluing Mauser used at that time. Some of the bright fire bluing is still on the bolt release and other parts. Mint bore. It has SBR 115 deeply stamped in the butt plate.....unit number??? Mauser Banner is pictured at the top on the first pic of prewar K98 Mausers. Comments welcomed!

Super rifle - the DR/DRP/ChDA series of rifles are without doubt to me the most beautiful military rifle EVER made.

My first DRP finally came through Customs here in Australia just yesterday, bought from a well known collector in the USA. Just finished fitting the rather uncommon sling to it (Kar98A style sling modified or made with the K98 style adjuster. Brass frosch stud is unit marked). I was also lucky to have been offered the also rather uncommon DRP bayonet to go with it (narrower blade than a regular S84/98 III). Makes a handsome ensemble!

Here are some pictures of my rifle and the uncommon EARLY sling.

How dare you "purge" the available units from the US market.......

Beautiful rifles folks!!!

I do agree--some of the most beautiful examples to come out of Germany
