Mauser Karabiner 98 | 8×57 IS

This is my original Mauser Carbine 98 made at Mauser Manufacturing in Oberndorf 1938. It was used in second world war and has the original Wehrmacht stamps on it. Take a look at the detailed pictures below. After second world war the carbine was used many years for hunting.
