Description

The Karabiner 98 kurz or Kar98 chambered in 7.92×57mm Mauser, I am not an expert in Kar98's but i will try my best to give an accurate and detailed description. The previous owner said that it was brought back from Stalingrad, It is a 1940 dated with a 42 factory code indicating Mauser Werke AG, Oberndorf as the manufacturer.

The barrel and action are matching serial numbers with the reich imperial eagle although the swastika has been dinged out with a punch. I believe this gun to be a russian capture (RC) going by the mismatched parts and the bolt serialized with an electro pencil. Most parts have WaA655 stamped on them. The rifle appears to have a sharp clean bore and has a reproduction leather sling. when the rifle came to us it was in a very dirty condition and the stock had been painted (used loosely, more like dunked) in what appeared to be yacht varnish. this has since been stripped on a few coats of tru oil added.
