    Greetings fellow enthusiasts,

    I recently came across a 1938 k98ss elite. The owner told me that the weapon was made by Mauser in Borsigwalde in a very limited run. Most prominent feature has to be the 25rd magazine, bringing total capacity to 30. According to a big collector the rifle was used by the LAH for parades and is so rare most museums don't have one. I have some pics but am a bit reluctant to put them online. Anyone out there with some background on this? Thank's in advance guys.

    The owner agreed to let me post some pics so here goes.

    Hey guys,

    Did some more research and the magazine seems to match that of a mg13. I think it's safe to say these were not used by the SS for parades, wouldn't be very practical to shoulder as several people pointed out. I ran across a couple that were presented as DDR border guard rifles and this one is supposed to have been used in Vietnam by the NVA, apparently from the Robert Ball estate.

    The 25 round magazine is the same type as used on the Mauser semi automatic M1916 'Fliers rifle' used in early WW1 as an air to air weapon by German aircrew-extended mags were fairly common in WW1 ground use as a way of reducing mud and dirt being fed into the weapon in the trenches via charger clip reloading-the Lee Enfield No.III had a detachable 20 round mag issued towards the end of the war-the Mauser K98 type would have been intended for any similar conditions that may have occurred during WW2 (although this wasn't common for any long period of time unlike WW1).

    I need help identifying this rifle. I just purchased it a couple days ago. The guy I bought it from said a friend gave it to him in the 60s. It has been hanging on his mantle since then. I believe it could be a Mauser 98, but very unsure. With my limited knowledge and the lack of identifiable markings, I'm having a very difficult time figuring out what I have. Your help is greatly appreciated.
