GERMAN J.P. SAUER AND SOHN GEW 98 SNIPER RIFLE. SN 7432. Cal. 8 mm. This rifle has several options that are extremely rare for a WWI rifle. First and foremost, it has what they call a trench cover or a dust cover. Second, it has a Zeiss 2.5 power telescope that attaches to the rear sight assembly. Third, it has a 20 round box magazine. Rifle is also equipped with an original sling and bayonet. This is the only example that I have observed that has all of these features incorporated into one rifle. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Overall rifle shows pretty good.  Receiver is turned patina as is the bolt and the bolt handle.  Trench guard or dust cover retains approximately 85% of its black finish with light surface scratches throughout.  Bbl retains nearly all of its finish but has turned plum.  The matching numbered front and rear bands retains 75% to 80% orig color turning plum.  Triggerguard assembly has approximately 60% blue turned brown.  The black painted magazine retains approximately 90% of its finish with some wear and scratches present.  The buttplate is patina with some small patches of light pitting on it.  The telescope retains better than 90% of its original blue/black finish and the leather eye piece is still somewhat pliable though drying and cracking.  Optics are cloudy on the scope.  Bayonet, that does not match the gun, is in very good condition, retaining approximately 50% of finish along with the scabbard.  Sling is still soft and pliable though showing its age with cracking throughout.  Hooks and hasps are turning patina.  Handguard is in excellent condition with no significant dents and scuffs.  Buttstock is in good condition and the right side shows very little damage but the left side has several dents just to the side and below the telescope that look like notches.  Mechanics are crisp and the bore is dark and somewhat frosted but with strong rifling.  Overall a pretty decent rifle with some very rare accrutiments.   4-34070 BK115 (2,500-4,000)
