My K98 Mauser

Just dug out my Mauser and thought I would share. The disc has been replaced with wood and checkering that could be better was carved into the stock at some point early in its life. I was told that it was done by the veteran who brought it home.

Wooden plug, replacement sling

1942, BYF manufacture

Interesting choice for checkering…

Overall a sweet shooter and one that I’ll never get rid of.

The other items are real. Grandpa brought them home. They are what they are in a historical context.
