In excellent minus all matching condition, we have a very scarce early production 1938 dated 27 code (ERMA) made K98k Mauser Service Rifle. The rifle is all matching with an excellent bore and still has the original sling. The cartouches on the laminated stock are very clear and crisp. The blue on the metal shows use during the war, giving the rifle a very romantic salty look. The date/code combination of this rifle is a very difficult one to locate, and any serious collector of 98k’s knows what a real find this rifle is. This is very much an example of one of those rare sought after codes that is irresistible to own in this solid condition.
