Default mauser k98 dot 1943

Just thought I'd post up a few pics of a k98 I found. I think everything matches and is right. It's a dot 43.

The areas with some wear are top of receiver/barrel and the trigger guard area and front band. Areas that a hand holds the rifle. Maybe when held in some guard duty position.

I do not have pics of the stock and hand guard insides, but both are numbered matched to rifle.

Anyways here are some pics...

Looks like a very nice bringback. Duffle cut? I assume no import marks? A keeper for sure. These don't go cheap.

Thanks. I like the walnut stocked ones as well. There appears to be a range of dot 43ís with walnut.

Thank you. No bring back papers and no duffle cut so don’t know if bring back. But certainly no import markings. Overall condition is excellent and looks like was not fired much. Just wear and some metal corrosion as shown where a sweaty hand carried it.

Without import marks, I'd still guess it to be a bringback. Pre-GCA import is possible, but so many K98's have been bubba'd and ruined that it would be hard to maintain that rifle in that condition anywhere outside of a private collection or attic find.

I hardly noticed that at first, but absolutely. I haven't seen many cupped hardwood stocks on mid-late war rifles like that. But there are so many anomalies with German WW2 stuff that anything is possible.
