    Yes, but very rare, - super rare this early. Mauser did not make a lot of military rifles (G98) in this period. Mauser made more in 1899 than 1900!

    ar/42 is by far harder to find, as a code, - not because Mauser-Berlin made less rifles in 1942 than 1941, but because there are a huge number of "dual codes" polluting the receiver mix. There were...
