K98 Mauser Photos

    Mike, a reader of TFB, bought a K98 Mauser from Mitchell’s Mausers and emailed me some photos.




    Mike says …

    I also have a Yugo Mauser from them. The Yugo was made in 1946 at a German plant after they were kicked out. The K98 was made in 1941, the quality isn’t as good as the Yugo one.

    It didn’t come with a sling, just with a “military strap with buckles” (read, Mosin Nagant sling), and they were out of some of the goodies (new ads reflect that), but I’m happy. I wanted a German Mauser and got one.

    Many thanks to Mike for emailing me the photos.
