Here's one of mine.





Here are a few photos of an original Israeli I.D.F. K98 Mauser front sight adjustment tool.

Kind of a rare item. I obtained it along with two Israeli Mauser rifles from Armscorp back in the 1980's. I was doing some work for them and was able to get the "pick of the litter".









Here is a photo of an original Israeli made K98 bayonet,



Israeli cleaning kit.

Photos added of another one of my Israeli's. Beautiful coloring in the wood. Somewhat unusual for the Israeli's to have this much coloring. The rifle is basically new and unfired after refurbishment.

Stunner Jimmy. I think they refered to the blade made by them as the m/48 bayonet. I love the front sight tool.

Presentation Israeli 98k Mauser

Great photos of really nice stuff, as always!

Given your past relationship with Armscorp, maybe you can provide some information on the rifle pictured below. I purchased it about 17 years ago from the owner of Armscorp. He had a small number of these Israeli 98k Mausers that he said were Israeli presentation pieces made-up by IMI. He said they were included with the thousands of standard Israeli Mausers and the many, many tons of parts and militaria he imported from Israel. The metal has a high polished blue with various parts highlighted with gold plating. The front sight hood is also gold plated but is not shown in this photo. I think the sale price was about $400, or a little more than twice what the standard Mausers were priced.

The only other time I saw one of these was a couple of years ago on dealer Christopher Gasior's websight.

Does anyone have any information on this rifle? THANKS.

Yes Jack, the owner of Armscorp, did have some of the "presentation" rifles at the time. I don't know their history other than what Jack told me, which was exactly what he told you. As far a numbers of these he had. I don't know. At the time I thought they were WAY over priced. But now I wish I had picked one up.

Are you looking to trade??? or sell???? if so drop me a P/M.

Jimmy:

Thanks for at least confirming that my memory of the story is correct. I'm sorry, but this one is a keeper. The reason why I bought this one, and like you I thought it was over-priced at the time, is that a couple of years before I picked up an Israeli Presentation Mauser bayonet. The piece is one of the Israeli manufactured bayonets like you posted photos of. It has a small engraved plaque (in Hebrew) afixed to the scabbard. I have not looked at the piece in a long time, so my memory may not be accurate, but I'm pretty sure that parts of the bayonet are chrome plated. The story I received at the time is that these special bayonets were presented to generous American contributors who donated funds to aid the Israeli armed forces. I'll try to dig this bayonet out of storage and post some photos.

These are nothing special. The top one began life as a BCD4. The bottom is a .22 made by FN in the 1950s.
