It's very interesting looking gun. It looks like the German K98 Mauser from 2nd WW.
Should be here by next week or so.

Man - if the first thing you see in the picture is the airgun, you really are an airgun fan!

Kinda, sorta, maybe - if you don't think the m98 action, which is what makes a Model 98 Mauser, a Model 98 Mauser, then perhaps, maybe - ahh - no- sorry -I don't think it does. It looks military, more like a Swedish, Chinese or Soviet semi-auto military rifle or the post WW11 era - but again, no attempt to make a replica action on this gun. The semi - or bolt action in conjunction with the stock design, is the defining feature of military rifles. The action mostly, is what separates the various makes.

here you go.

I'm not really familiar with the military version, but I have a 9 X 57 MM model 98 sporting version from the 1930's with completely different wood. I wish I could see the action from the top.

little bit off topic. We have about 500 left of German k98 Mauser in stock. Some interesting ones that have Portuguese crest on top of the receiver.
Also I found one with Mauser crest on it. Most of them were Russian captured. Manufacturing date from 1936 to 1944. Some came from Sauer.
Some came from concentration camp with SS signature on it for approval.

Here is some older one.

About all M98's looks the same from the top - except the Mexican Mauser is slightly shorter, as-is the M98 Kurtz.

Some rifles (military) had normal walnut stocks, others were laminated. I do not claim to be any sort of expert on them, but have seen shooting them since 1968. My first was a P.O.Ackley M98 mil. Mauser custom Bench-gun in .22-250 with a Walnut/Aluminum laminated stock. It was pretty wild. The actions are pretty much all the same with minor variations, but ALL recognizable as M98's.
