This is a very nice example of the WWI Gew 98 chambered in 8mm Mauser. This rifle is a WWI bringback manufactured by C.G. Haenel in 1916. This rifle is all matching with the exception of the safety and rear trigger guard screw. The stock is all original and has not been refinished or messed with in any way. The bore on this rifle is in excellent condition. It is bright and shiny with strong lands and grooves. The outside finish is in very good shape. There is light pitting the receiver, but it is in otherwise correct non blued condition. The firing pin is clipped on this rifle, but a replacement pin will be included along with the original matching one.
