WW1 GERMAN DE-ACTIVATED G98 RIFLE DATED 1916
The G98 was the standard issue rifle for the German Armed Forces during WW1. This rifle was made by the German factory of ERFURT in 1916 which is clearly marked on the top of the bolt carriage.
The rifle is in good overall condition, all marks and stamps remain clear and intact. There is some light bruising and chips on the woodwork here and there commensurate with the rifles age. The woodwork is a nice light walnut colour. There is no ramrod.
The rifle cocks and dry fires, the sight deploys correctly.
G98 rifles are much rarer than the 303 rifles and deactivated examples are rarely seen as live firer's are expensive.
