World War II Nazi K98 Mauser Double Claw SS Sniper Rifle  Guns > Rifles > Mauser Rifles > German
Description: This is an exceptional example of a very rare World War II K98 Mauser "SS" double claw sniper rifle. These rifles were produced from late 1943 to late 1944 using both Mauser and Steyr produced rifles, and all were fitted with the double claw bases on the receiver with the desirable Czech "dow" center adjustment/focus scope. The top of the receiver ring is marked "bnz". The left rear of the barrel is marked with correct eagle firing proof. The left side of the receiver ring also has the original eagle firing proof along with an "eagle/SSZZA2" proofmark followed by the serial number, and the receiver side wall is marked "Mod. 98". The rifle has the milled trigger guard, floor plate and milled unnumbered barrel bands. The bolt assembly is a wartime subcontract bolt made by FN, which carries the "WaA140" proof that has been light etched with the serial number on top of the bolt handle as well as the bolt assembly and safety. The scope is a center focus model that is correct for this style of sniper rifle as produced by the Czechoslovakian firm of Optiotechna. It carries the correct factory wartime code of "dow" followed by a blue cross and is fitted with a set of original double claw rings with the two locking levers on each side of the rear ring. The left side of the scope tube is marked with serial number "6826". It has the standard post reticule. The rifle has the standard laminated stock and hand guard, and it is fitted with a smooth cupped butt plate and is stamped with a large Nazi firing proof on the right side of the buttstock. Complete with a cleaning rod under the barrel and an cross-hatched leather sling.

The rifle retains 97% original blue finish with some thinning on the floor plate, trigger guard and forward barrel band. The stock is very fine with some minor scuffing and dark areas on the toe, a couple of age cracks in the butt, and a few minor dings and dents on the balance. The scope is excellent with some normal thinning and high edge wear. The otherwise okay optics are a little hazy. The elevation knob works correctly, and the reticule is good. The markings are clear. The action is excellent. A much sought after example of an extremely rare and desirable SS double claw sniper rifle with matching scope.
