I just bought a Mauser K98 rifle and will not be able to pick it up from the dealer until next wee, so I cannot post any pictures on it at this time. I am trying to find out some information on my rifle. I know it is a Russian capture and the serial numbers on the ammo drop clip does not match with those on the barrel. On top of the receiver, there is a number 237, below it is the year 1939. On the left side of the barrel, there is a X above the number 4014. There is a capital A on the bottom of the handgrip of the stock, it has a small metal buttplate. On the front end barrel band, there is a number WA 65 underneath what looks like an eagle with straight lines going down. I don't know if these are waffenmarks, but these markings are on the barrel, receiver. I did not write down the numbers on the tigger guard (I could not find any) or the numbers on the ammo drop plate. The stock is a dark brown. There is a number 4014 stamped on the left side of the stock and 4014 electic stencilled on the bolt. The barrel was reblued but there is a plum coloring on the metal on the right side of the bolt. I will try to get pictures later on. Any help will be appreciated.
