This 1937 Deactivated K98 is in fantastic condition it cocks and dry fires, and is a super rare example made in Portugal. 

Why Portugal?

The Portuguese army ordered 50,000 k98s from Mauser in German military spec, they then ordered another 60,000 made in 1937, again full military spec but with the Portuguese crest on. Due to the build up to WW2 the Germans kept 10,000 back for their own army and they stamped them up with waffen stamps and were put into general military service. The K98s that went into the Portuguese military were stamped m137 as their designation but the 10,000 were not as they never left Germany! This weapon is one of the ones used by the Wehrmacht during WW2.

The iconic K98

The Karabiner 98 kurz, often abbreviated Karabiner 98k, Kar98k or K98k and also the K98, is a bolt-action rifle chambered for the 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridge. It was adopted on 21 June 1935 as the standard service rifle by the German Wehrmacht.  

All deactivated weapons sold by Vigo Militaria and Collectables are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
