Just saw a Mauser 98 type rifle in 7.92 in a local store that was in very nice condition but I did not recognize the marks nor did anyone in the store know from which country it served. Attached is a picture of the receiver markings. Any ideas? They were asking $350 USD and I'm curious if a reasonable price or not. Also, as mentioned it was in very nice condition (almost looked unissued) but I did notice that the wooden upper hand grip appeared to actually have a knot in it? Was it normal for Mausers to have wood knots in the stocks?
Thank you in advance!
