Mauser Gewehr 98 (often abbreviated to G98, Gew 98, or M98)

The Gewehr 98, was introduced into German military service in 1898, replacing the Gewehr 1888. The bolt-action design was a refinement of the 1895 design.

Ongoing changes made to the original design included :
1903 Internal bolt and Firing Pin change.
1903 / 1905 Change from .318 J Bore to .323 S Bore.
1903 / 1905 Lange sight changed from 200 to 400 meters.
1916 Unit disk replaced with takedown washer.
1916 Stock grasping grooves added.
1916 Solid Beech stocks authorised.

A nice example of a 1916 dated G98 manufcatured at the Imperial Arsenal DANZIG.

Nearly all matching numbers, see details below. Bolt body has a matching numbers but may have been remarked, hard to say for sure,
other bolt components are not matched.

Correct for an Imperial G98, the receiver / bolt are not blued & has the Lange sight

Production took place at DANZIG from 1899 through 1908 and 1912 through 1918
