    i recently puchased this K98K Portuguese 1941 contract mauser,.all matching serial numbers on stock & Bolt/Block etc,made by Mauserwerke A.G Oberndorf A.N H BLOCK
    WaA 135 Waffenampt marked with Portuguese crest stamped on receiver,Cosmoline throughout barrel/block possibly un-issued.with expected storage & transport damage
    it has been in storage somewhere in europe for a long time,some of these portuguese contract rifles were called back to germany late war to be issued to the wehrmacht when raw materials were scarce.it has some small scattered dings & dents but i think still holds its walnut wood stock with some laminat.& post 1940 cupped buttplate,i also purchased the Bayonette marked jwh by Staatliche waffenfabrik the scabbard is marked 4276 & S/117 G bayonette is marked 2394 so not matching.any comments / Opinions much appretiated,also any other information you can tell me please do so,or if i am incorrect about anything please let me know.,thanks for checking out my post,.cheers silas

    Excellent example-they weren't 'recalled'-export rifles were held at the factory and not allowed to be sent to Portugal due to the deteriorating war situation and then issued to the German forces. Portuguese markings were applied at the Oberndorf factory.

    That's a sweet rifle! Beautiful
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Actually, as lithgow stated, some Portuguese contract rifle were not delivered and diverted to the Wehrmacht, due the operation Barbarossa needs (some shortage in rifles and other materials).
    Surveying the RC K98's, it seems that the Portuguese sent in battle were mainly of the F block, with some (rare) G block; there should be an interesting sticky about that on GB.
    You have an gorgeous specimen, almost mint and, for what I can see, absolutely not messed with.
    Too bad for the "F" scratched on the safety (fire?): try to touch it with a drop of could blue.

    It's usual in Australia to see an 'F' marked on the fire position of the safety lever on Mauser action rifles-usually red paint as well-this is a customs import regulation here.

    It seems that each Country has some curious rules about weapons; just figure out that here bayonets, daggers and swords are treated as firearms: you need a police permission to buy/own one.
