The Gewehr 98 (abbreviated G98Gew 98 or M98) is a German bolt-action Mauser rifle firing cartridges from a 5-round internal clip-loaded magazine that was the German service rifle from 1898 to 1935, when it was replaced by the Karabiner 98k, a shorter weapon using the same basic design. The Gewehr 98 action, using stripper clip loading with the powerful 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridge, successfully combined and improved various bolt action engineering concepts soon adopted by many other countries including Britain, Japan, and the US.[2] The Gewehr 98 replaced the earlier Gewehr 1888 rifle as the German service rifle, first saw combat in the Boxer Rebellion, and was the main German infantry service rifle of World War I. The Gewehr 98 saw further military use by the Ottoman Empire and Nationalist Spain. Many have been converted to sporting use.

THIS PARTICULAR RIFLE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH VERY GOOD WOOD WORK AND GOOD SHOOTING BORE. CARRIES THE MARKINGS OF DANZIG 1916.
