WWII German Mauser 98k Sporter Project Rifle


WWII German Mauser 98k Sporter Project Rifle

You are considering a vintage WWII German Mauser 98k Sporter Project Rifle. It’s in good shape for what it is but does have a few things to note. The metalwork is World War II era German 98k stamped throughout, but not matching. The receiver was manufactured in 1943 by Mauserwerk in Oberndorf, Germany. The bolt has a turned-down handle and doesn’t feature any waffenamts. The barrel measures 23.62-inches in length and features its original front and rear sights — it is also chambered for the standard 7.92x57mm (8mm) Mauser cartridge. The bore is shooter-grade and slightly dark with good rifling and some pitting towards the muzzle-end. The wood stock is around 80% complete and not bedded to the rifle, nor does it fit snuggly — it’ll need working to come together nicely. There’s some custom engraving on the sides that isn’t half-bad for what it is. It includes a pistol-grip cap, buttplate, reduced-drop heel, and a right-handed comb. The trigger and bolt mechanism don’t appear to function properly, but all the components are there, so it may just need a reworking/touchup.
