Thank you so much for that information. This rifle was my fathers but I have no idea how he came to have it. Very interesting though!Pleased to meet you. Be great if you introduced yourself.
Your rifle is a Karabiner 98 Mauser made in the former Czechoslovakia when occupied by Nazi Germany in 1944.
Made at Mauser-Werk Bystrika in what is now Slovakia.
I hope that info is useful to you. I'm not a professional appraiser and I don't know you from Adam so I won't presume to put a value on it.
Would you have any suggestions as to where to have it appraised?
Where are you located? I can name a place or two in CO if you’re local.Would you have any suggestions as to where to have it appraised?
