This rifle was dated for 1944. The Rifle’s serial number is 4888 AI. It has the standard barrel chambered for the 8M/M German Service round. The bore is in very fine bright condition. This rifle is all matched serial numbers including the bolt. The action works smoothly with no issues. The sights are original to this gun. The stock is also serial numbered to this rifle. The stock has the earlier style buttplate installed. The wood is the laminated style stock with no damage or other issues. This rifle is not a duffle bag cut gun. The sling is a correct military issued leather sling for this rifle. It has the original cleaning rod and bayonet stud intact. The original bluing would rate a 92% overall condition.The magazine floor plate has the grey phosphate finish which was coming into service at that time. This is a very fine nice condition 98K service rifle that is certainly a collector grade gun for the military collector. It is certainly getting harder to find original as issued German rifles that are all matched serial numbers. This is one of these fine rifles!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
