Description:

Introduced late in WWII, the "Kriegsmodell" (War Model) 98k was designed for easier and faster production, increasing the number of stamped components while eliminating some features. This particular 98 was produced in the "t" suffix range, placing it very late in the war. Fitted with a hooded blade front and tangent rear sight on the "ED" stamped barrel, with "Mod.98/bnz45" on the receiver ring. Fitted with a stamped "byf" trigger guard and floor plate, and a pair of screw-secured stamped and welded barrel bands. Crude cast safety assembly on rear of bolt. Smooth pistol grip stock with a laminated hand guard, "eagle/swastika/H" Heer stamp on the right buttstock and a cupped steel buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 95% original phosphate finish with limited handling marks, stock is very fine with scattered dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
