Erfurt Kar98/K98 1909 (All-Matching, Unit Marked)
Price: $1,795.00 | Product Code: Kar98 | Availability: In Stock
This is a very attractive, Erfurt Arsenal 1909 manufactured Kar 98a carbine. It is in excellent, very sharp, pristine condition. This rifle is totally matching, down to the screws. The bore is mint. The stock is dark walnut, not the dried-up looking, late-war beech wood that was often used. The cartouches are intact.
The model 98a was the standard carbine in use by the German Army at the time and it was the forerunner of the later 98k. These rifles featured the 98 “small ring action” and many were turned into custom rifles because of the sleek design. Today, finding and original matching rifle is difficult, and this beautiful-looking example would be the pride of any German Mauser collection. This is a hard rifle to find in this condition, plus it's unit marked "20 ID"!
