Picked up a Gustloff .22 Trainer today w/ Waffen Jung stamp?

I picked up a really nice Gustloff .22 trainer K98 with a weird stamp on the left hand side ofbthe stock. The stamp is Waffen Jung Stuttgart. The markings on the rest of the gun are as follows.

Top of receiver: Large G with Gustloff-Werke Waffenwerk Suhl underneath it.
left side of barrel: Kal. 22 Lang fur Buchsen 211512
Right side of barrel: K.K. Wehrsportyewehr

Is this a military trainer or a commercial sales rifle? And what is the deal with the stamp? Is a commercial firearms business? I got it off a guy today that he said his neighbor brough it back from WWII and gave it to him before he died. And he has had it ever since. It came with an original sling as well, but it's so fragile I took it off for frear of ripping it.

Any and all help would be appreciated!
