    These are something I have on my want list, I have the commission 88 and a Kar98a ,But need to add a good Gewehr 98 to my collection and I have been researching what is right and wrong for those years it was produced and for a correct WW1 rifle. That rear site and receiver/bolt in the white like weller's rifle is what I'm looking for. Just saying

    Phil - if I see good one I'll let you know. I do shoot this one occasionally and it's very accurate and has a nice kick

    A very nice rifle, but it looks as though the blue is a re-finish. The breech and receiver area - although looking good, have been over-polished, and this has resulted in loss of sharpness and some shape to the contours.

    Agree someone years back over-polished the receiver area. I bought this rifle 30+ years ago when I was a teenager for less than $100 which fit my budget at the time - I just wanted a Mauser rifle
