cleaning rod, adjustable rear sight & steel butt plate.

The receiver is crisply date stamped 1937 and with the Nazi German Wartime code S/42.
The weapon retains its waffenamt inspectors marks and has some nice examples stamped into the butt

Most parts are matching including the stock, though the bolt has been replaced in service and has electro engraved matching number.

This is one of the very first Mauser rifles intended for Portugual, quite rare as is does not have the Portuguese crest on the receiver only on the butt

With the German Waffenamt on the Butt the rifle could quite probably of went straight into German Service

A good Useable Example of a genuine German WW2 era Mauser With a Good Shooting Grade Bore
