    Kevin, I don't have it anymore. I sold it because I only collect WW2 K98 items. It does fit a K98 however but it's for the export Mauser that was sold to Brazil.

    Thanks a lot,reich1900.
    I found some pics on internet.It shows there are some markers on it.It seems like there must be some markers on it if it's the real authentic war-period cover,isn't it?

    Kevin, I don't believe that Brazil fought in WW1 or WW2. I don't think these cover ever saw any combat but are marked for what ever official orginzation to whom the gun was assigned. Still nice to have. I only collect German WW1 & WW2 items.

    Brazil was an Allied power. Brazilian Soldiers fought in Italy in WW2. But they were kitted out with US gear.

    Kevin I wouldn't pay $100 for one. I have seen them for sale at gunshows, web sites and even ebay.
