Blank receiver Kar98k, assembled in the 17th military district depot from spare parts. Bolt only mismatch, rest of the rifle is original matching. Missing the rod, import marked on the front of the barrel, all original Nazi markings are fully intact. Condition is good, maybe 30% bluing left, unsanded wood in solid condition. Bore is very good, shows some wear in the throat but is bright&shiney with an excellent crown.
This is a scarce variety of 98k, assembled from spare parts from various manufacturers. According to the rear sight parts, this was assembled in 1942 or later (sight leaf is range-numbered 1 side only, and is not drilled for the crosspin). Is cut for a sight hood, but one is not present.
You won't find this type of rifle in BBOTW, so do not use that as any kind of reference for this rifle; these have been discussed at length on our 98k board, search there for details on this variant.
An interesting mix of parts, here are some:
-stock and handguard (red glue laminate) 'c' and e/18 (Gustloff)
-receiver e/359 (Sauer via Walther)
-triggerguard single e/37 (Sauer)
-floorplate/follower e/1 and 'l' (Gustloff)
-barrel 'dsh' e/76 (Czeck)
-bands e/1 and 'l' (Gustloff)
-ejector box e/623 (Steyr)
-sight bed e/63 and '42' (Oberndorf)
-sight base e/26 x2 (Borsigwalde)\
The bolt is an oddball, scrubbed bolt body and renumbered (still not matching to the rifle) with all the rest of the parts overstamped to match the bolt body. I feel this *might* be a period German reworked part, but I will leave the final determination up to the end user.
Many more images available via email, will answer any questions promptly.
1) Unserialed rod, 10 inch, made at Oberndorf in 1935. Marked 'k167' and 'k' (for karabiner) this rod was never serialed numbered, and as such, would be a legit replacement part for any 98k with a 10 inch rod. Almost no original finish remains. This rod has had the thread end shortened by about 1/8 of an inch, but still fits and displays perfectly. $60 shipped.
2) 10 inch rod, serial numbered 61 and WaA63 marked. Nice original rod for a 38/39/40 Oberndorf 98k. Original threads, has about 20% original finish with some micropitting under the wood. $60 shipped.
3) 12 inch rod, serial numbered 77 and marked 'i' (Diamantwerke) and e/1 (Gustloff). Original thread, has approx. 90% finish. Likely original to a 41 bcd rifle. $50 shipped.
Nice original bolt body, likely original to a S/27G rifle (e/132 inspection marks with Weimar-type eagles). Has e/132 twice on bottom flat, with another on the extractor ring. Serialed 1794 (no suffix). Has nice Weimar eagle firing proof on the rear flat. Original condition, NOT RC, retains about 50% original blued finish. $40 shipped.
