I am truly surprised that not more Australian collectors have answered here considering how prevelant the mint M941's are here (and to a lessor extent, the M937).

As-new M941's change hands here for $2000 Aus these days - that's about $1900 US. With matching bayonet, adds another $500 suually.

Hello Hambone,

I don’t know if this thread is still actively seeking information but I’ll take the chance.

I have a completely matching S/42 1937 98k, serial number 431p, that has a Portuguese crest with the year 1937 stamped on the left side of the stock just below the bolt disassembly grommet (not sure of the proper nomenclature). The stock is numbered to the rifle and there is an additional number stamped below the crest date of 1937.

If you would like additional information please send me an email.

Bill

I have a 1937 Portugese Mauser. The serial number is 8389. The floorplate-trigger guard, and barrel bands match. The stock also matches. The bolt is a mismatch and numbered 9715 D. I picked up the rifle about 15 year ago in a pawn shop. It has no import marks. Overall condition is about 95%. I can see no evidence for German use, but all of the parts have the Mauser Waffenamt 63.

Sorry.
I've been looking for a "good" one for about 20 years.
My father and other male relatives from that time period used Portuguese Mausers during their military service in Africa.
Had to have at least one in the collection.

Portuguese 1941 contract

Another one to report:

Mauser 1941 serial number H162 fully matching including bayonet. "135" Waffenamt mark above Portuguese crest and "1941". "Orion" and West German '79 proof. Set in mint condition and complete with original sling and bayonet frog.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Here's something you don't see often! F 5793, GER, RC, TGI Knox TN. I am reporting this is a walnut/flat M941 stock ONLY with some matching parts, not a barrel receiver! Stock came with it's original sn# and proof-matching bayo mount, crossbolt, and buttplate still in place. All parts with sn# match the channel number. All parts are e/655 or WaA 655 proofed. Bayo mount, crossbolt, and flat buttplate with small Port cross stamped on it are correct 'in-the-white', not Russian re-blued.
Sn# for the rifle it came on stamped on the L/H side as is common on RC's. The rifle it came on was an early Sauer. Appearently Ivan felt lazy that day...
