    Default Mauser Obendorf 1917

    Guys;
    I just got a new GEW.98. It is a Mauser Obendorf 1917 that has no import marks, no Turkish markings, and has allot of matching parts! The barrel, receiver, entire bolt/firing pin, shoulder plate, and sight and base are all matched! Everything else was mismatched and the stock had been chopped up, but I had sanded stock I could put it in until I find a nicer stock. Here are a couple of photos, I will try and get a couple more next week.

    Wonderful gun. I used to own a Gewehr 98. Have fun shooting it! You will find it remarkably well balanced and soft on recoil.

    Congratulations on your find / Gew 98s are great rifles.

    Gew 98s have lacked the "glamour" of the Kar 98k, but are a much more elegant weapon. The price for a good undinked with gun has risen steadily over the last few years.

    I got $550 for a much mismatched gun. I love that rear sight. Looks like something Captain Nemo would use. BB

    I got mine for $495.00 which is what we had in it at the store.
