GERMAN MAUSER MODEL VG-98 MFG BNZ 45. SN 6903. Cal. 8MM. This is a prime example of the absolute last ditch 98K's that Germany industry was able to produce due to being bombed into submission by the US Army Airforce. The industry was so decimated that they were unable to produce anything beyond the crudest firearms that were only capable of working. By this time all semblance of craftsmanship was gone. Very few examples exist today. GI's tended to bring home higher quality guns. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Receiver and bbl assembly retain approx 95% of the medium gray phosphate finish with which it was produced with the serial number only being on the bbl assembly. The front sight is spot welded into place and the rear sight is merely a piece of notched out steel that is dove tailed into the receiver. The bolt assembly which matches the gun retains approx 50% of its blued finish. The trigger guard assembly does not appear to have any finish at all and the trigger is blued. The buttstock is a single piece of wood that is barely shaped enough to accommodate the gun and make it user friendly. It has a reinforcing pin just below the front receiver ring. A fine example of the turn for worse that German industry took in the final days of the war. Mechanics are crisp, bore is bright and shiny and shows little use. 4-33941 BK65 (2,500-4,000)
