  Forefather of the K98
« on: April 20, 2009, 20:39:13 PM » by oneshotbandit
Another one bites the dust!!!

This is the Mauser Standard Modell of 1933 .......one of two variants launched at the same time for trials.......the second of which was the closest and inspirational to the K98k. 

Year of manufacture can be derived from the 8 line Mauser stamp, earlier had 6 lines and a different font on the M and R

This one here is closer to the Gewehr 98 although of the same dimensions of the carbine brother!  Note that the rifle has a pinned front stock band, a spring detained rear band, straight bolt and G98 sling arrangements....and all the correct furniture.

What is interesting is that this model was made for export but also adopted by some SS divisions on their formation.

Use by home German units is distinguished by a stamped 'sS' on the barrel ring denoting sights for and bore for the then newly (and excusively German!) adopted 196 grain 'schwere Spitzer' (heavy spitzer) bullet.  Export rifles were differently equipped and marked!  Wink

Proofs are the pre 1940 B-U-G-N proofs, the rifle is a bolt mismatch, otherwise complete and not re-finished!

Ironically.......I have yet to see a Standard Modell with a matching bolt!

Prosit OSB - a very nice addition indeed. These early Mauser rifles are very finely made.
