Description



You are bidding on a SUPERB used example of a WW1 Leather Action / Receiver Cover!  This was unsed in conjunction with the 7.92 Mauser Gewehr 98 Rifle!


 


The Gewehr 98 (abbreviated G98, Gew 98 or M98) is a German bolt-action Mauser rifle firing cartridges from a 5-round internal clip-loaded magazine that was the German service rifle from 1898 to 1935, when it was replaced by the Karabiner 98k, a shorter weapon using the same basic design. The Gewehr 98 action, using stripper clip loading with the powerful 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridge, successfully combined and improved various bolt action engineering concepts soon adopted by many other countries including Britain, Japan, and the US.   The Gewehr 98 replaced the earlier Gewehr 1888 rifle as the German service rifle, first saw combat in the Boxer Rebellion, and was the main German infantry service rifle of World War I. The Gewehr 98 saw further military use by the Ottoman Empire and Nationalist Spain. Many have been converted to sporting use.


  


Made of leather and steel, this action cover is in AMAZING used condition!  Though there are some slight marks, scratches, and wear, it is VERY solid with no damage!  The main leather body is till VERY soft and supple, however the strap is a bit stiff, due to the age (still flexible, however).  It features a unit marking indicating, “2   23” (23rd Division); or “223” (223rd Division), as well as a serial number indicating the rifle number.  Almost IMPOSSIBLE to find in this condition, it would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!

——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
