SN 8959. Cal. 8mm. Highly sought after Mauser G41(M) Rifle produced 1942 with machined trigger guard. WaA 135 proofed on numerous parts including receiver band, bolt, top cover, bbl bands, trigger guard, rear sight and magazine housing. Numbers appear all matching except for bolt which is “8249”, and buttplate which is “9234A” Mfg. by C. G. Haenel. Even the detachable muzzle matches SN. Lock screws not present on bottom of trigger guard nor is hood for front sight present. Includes one orig steel cased German cartridge. Consignor states he purchased this directly from the veteran together with the cartridge which has nearly all of the lacquer worn off due to it being “carried in a pocket”. Wood stock has NOT been duffle bag cut. Action moves smoothly when operated by hand. Bolt stays in the down and locked position when fired as is proper. This weapon appears fully functional. The left side of the receiver is drilled for scope. The stock is slightly reconfigured at wrist. Front blade sight is a replacement. CONDITION: Overall appears and finish very good to fine with finish on metal parts thinning to a pleasing grey patina uniformly across all metal parts. A nice indication that this weapon was indeed a bring-back. Stock has been sanded and refinished and there is a 3″ long crack on the handguard at the top right side. Sling slot shows a little more significant sanding and scratching. Buttplate is affixed with non-original screws and is proud of the wood. Bore has strong rifling, dark in the grooves. Examples of this model surface only very rarely and even with a couple of mis-matched parts, this is a highly desirable specimen. 50188-1 JWK20 (7,000-12,000) C&R – Lot 3084
