** German Mauser 98k Rifle with Gerard Scope

8mm caliber, 23" barrel, S/N G2482.  Serial number mismatched with import information on bottom of barrel.  "CE" markings on receiver with Nazi proofs throughout with "37" inspector code.  Fitted with Gerard Model "C" 4 1/2x scope marked "C/D.R.G.M./Dr. W. GERARD/CHARLOTTENBURG", S/N 11071.


Fair to good.  Barrel and receiver retain much of the original bluing with some light rust frosting.  Scope has a plumb patina with some flaking of black pain exposing brass underneath.  Stock shows some discoloration of finish with some marks and dents.  Bore is slightly dark with minimal pitting.  Rifling is visible with slightly rounded edges.

Estimate: $500 - $750
