GEW 98 Rifle / Kar98b "S28" version with SS-TV marking
« on: September 10, 2014, 06:51:25 AM »
Hi everybody,
What do you think of this - IMO very rare - Mauser Kar98b (very early "S28" version with blank receiver and S28 marking on several parts, same serial number on every parts, blank bolt but with light matching (hand)numbering?) with "SS-TV" marking under the barrel? I think it has been somehow "rechambered" in a 8x54 S caliber, turning the barrel so that the SS-TV marking, once just visible above the wood, is now on the lower part of it - and so invisible. The french deactivation (AN + crown marking)  :'( made the "V" disappear  >:(
Do you think this SS marking could be genuine (I never saw such one on a gun)?
Thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts  :) Message

This particular specimen appears in "Karabiner 98k Volume 1: A collectors guide to the development and production of the German K98k service rifle up to 1938" by Michael Steves and Bruce Karem (N182a with "h" and 3 "O" with crown), but without any mention of the SS marking:

Model 1910 Pistol / Unusual Mod.1910

Hi everybody,
 What do you think about this unusual Mauser pistol ? It seems to be a mod. 1910 (slide type, caliber 6,35, magazine latch, magazine with flat bottom) but with a "square" rear frame and without "sidelatch", with black "sort of plastic" grips, with only one serial number on the left of the slide but only a "0" on the right side of the frame, and with a particular "cut out" on the right side of the frame.

I never saw another one like this one  :(

Thank you in advance for your thoughs/answers  :)
