Lot 0333: 1943 ERMA Mauser 98k (Germany)
The Karabiner 98 kurz, or carbine 98 short, is a bolt action rifle that often served with the Axis armies in the Second World War. Entered service in June 1935 as a standard rifle for the German Wehrmacht and was the final stage in the line of military rifles developed by Mauser.
A Kar98k should not be missing in a Second World War collection, it is an iconic German weapon.
In the post war this Kar98k from 1943 has been converted into a hunting rifle with a different stock from another Mauser (export) model.
Equipped with mounting points for a scope it is a very interesting object. The civilian post-war use makes it a nice collector's item, harmoniously connecting the war period with a post-war application.
