GEW 98 Rifle / Chromed 1915 Danzig Gewehr 98
« on: February 09, 2015, 07:11:10 PM »
I recently took possession of the above Mauser, with virtually no wear anywhere, but chromed at some point after proofing.  My gunsmith thinks it might be a parade rifle.  It must have been brought home by a Doughboy, because there are no subsequent Reichswehr of Wehrmacht markings on it, which it certainly would have, had it been used in WWII.

Has anyone ever heard of a Gewehr 98 chromed at the factory, or by the Imperial Army (as opposed to chromed by the Doughboy who brought it home)?


General Mauser Rifle Questions / 1906 Mauser

Dear Experts:

Would a 1906 Oberndorf built Mauser (apparently commercial rather than military) have the modern 98 attributes and strength, and would it be large ring and standard long chambered?   Is there some comprehensive chart for determining the characteristics of the many Mauser variations?
