DESCRIPTION: Early Warsaw arsenal production Polish K98 Mauser short rifle. The rifle is marked on the receiver ring, "Polish Eagle (early style!), PFK WARSZAWA 1928"("P.F.K." = Panstwowa Fabryka Karabinow = The State Rifle Factory in Warsaw, Poland). The left side of the receiver rail displays model designation, "K98". The right side of the buttstock displays an interesting cartouche, "Eagle over a Shield with a Letter 'K' inside" (fading, please, see pictures). The Polish style rear sling swivel, which is usually located in the lower part of the buttstock, was replaced by Germans with a steel cover (the Germans did not use lower sling swivels). The rear barrel band was modified by Germans accordingly, with the lower, Polish style sling swivel removed. Hundreds of thousands of Polish rifles were captured by Nazis in 1939. They were promptly reissued to German forces. Some authors indicate that during the 1941 attack on the Soviet Union, captured Polish and Czechoslovak rifles constituted about half of all German rifles. Consequently, most of Polish rifles used on the Eastern Front were destroyed, or captured by the Soviets. Some Polish rifles were also used by Germans on the Western Front. The US soldiers captured some of them in Italy and France and brought them back to the USA. Matching serial numbers, except of the stacking hook and magazine follower (matching numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, bolt, stock, handguard, bolt release lever, barrel band, nosecap, buttplate, trigger guard, front and rear sights; the number on the magazine floorplate was force matched; mismatched serial numbers on the stacking hook and on the magazine follower). There are no serial numbers stamped on all the remaining parts of the rifle. Correct Polish manufactured bolt with with a turned down handle. The rear sights are calibrated from 300 meter to 2000 meter. Strong, 98-type action. The rifle was manufactured with no provision for the cleaning rod. Overall length is 43.5 inch. The barrel length is 23.50 inch. CONDITION: Low fine. 70% of original, thin blue finish is still present on metal. The balance is in white, mixed with some brown patina. Most of the finish wear is on barrel bands, trigger guard and on the magazine floorplate. Some blue finish is starting to turn to brownish color. Some patina on the buttplate. The stock shows some handling marks, scratches and light dings, but is still in very good condition. Original finish on the stock and handguard. No cracks in wood. Bore is dark and corroded, but the rifling is still there. Strong action. Mechanically the rifle is in very good/fine condition. All the internal parts of the rifle are in fine condition, with no visible wear. All the markings and numbers are still visible on metal. Partially visible and recognizable markings on wood.

The serial numbers on the trigger guard, magazine floor plate and on the magazine follower were most likely added by Germans after the rifle was captured in 1939.

DESCRIPTION: Beautiful Polish wz.29 Radom Mauser sporting rifle. The rifle was part of a well known Polish firearms collection of Mr. Revolinski of Cody, Wyoming (purchased by my family member in 1992). It was custom built for Mr. Revolinski by a famous American gunmaker Paul Jaeger. The latter first operated in Jenkintown, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, and them moved to Tennessee. His rifles are highly prized on both, collector and sporting markets. He is no longer in business. The rifle was converted to a high-grade sporter from a standard military wz.29 configuration. There are following markings on the receiver ring: "Polish Eagle, F.B. Radom 1935"("F.B." = Fabryka Broni = The Arms Factory in Radom, Poland). The right side of the receiver ring also displays small Polish Eagle. The left side of the receiver and barrel still displays Polish matching serial numbers. The bolt, bolt release lever and trigger guard also display original, matching serial numbers. The magazine floor plate displays a mismatched serial number (a Nazi occupation, Radom made part with "Eagle 77"). No serial numbers are stamped on the remaining parts of the rifle. Strong, 98-type action. The rifle still has original Radom manufactured barrel in 7.92 x 57 mm caliber. Beautiful, high-gloss blue finish. Original, Radom manufactured bolt, was modified in a sporting style (the bolt handle was turned down; checkering was added on the ball; faded Polish Eagle is still visible on the ball; Polish arsenal markings are present on the handle). Custom, Paul Jaeger's trigger mechanism. The left side of the trigger displays a name, "Jaeger". Sporting style safety lever displays markings, "Mark II". Lyman micro-adjustable rear sights were installed on the back of the receiver. Sporting style, ramped beaded blade front sights. Two sporting style sling swivels. The rifle comes complete with the SPI 4 x 32 M. 564 scope. Custom, quick release scope mount with the following maker address, "Paul Jaeger - Jenkintown, PA". One piece, sporting style, custom walnut half-stock with a large cheek-piece and a pistol grip. Diamond checkering at the wrist of the buttstock and in the middle of the length of the forestock. Pachmayr "White Line" rubber buttplate. High quality of machining and metal finish! Overall length is 42.75 inch. The barrel length is 21.75 inch. The rifle comes with a decorative, Western style leather sling. CONDITION: Near mint. 99%+ of very nice, high gloss blue finish on metal. Beautiful and solid stock with no handling marks (mint!). Bore is in low excellent condition with strong and shiny rifling. Strong action. Mechanically the rifle is in perfect condition. All the internal parts of the rifle are in excellent condition, with no visible wear. All the markings and numbers are clearly visible on metal. Very handsome Paul Jaeger's Polish wz.29 sporting rifle! I have not seen another Paul Jaeger custom sporter built on a Polish Radom wz.29 action. I have no doubt that this was Mr. Revolinski's favorite hunting rifle! The rifle comes from my family member collection of military firearms (please, pay by check, money order, or bank wire transfer only). Serial# 292XXP.

Very Scarce Early Production Polish wz.98-29 Mauser Short Rifle (Warsaw, 1924)

Caliber: 7.92 x 57 mm

Price: $1975

Inventory # mau_0727

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: Very scarce, early production Polish wz. 98-29 Mauser short rifle. This model designation applies to those Polish wz.1898 rifles (basically, Polish copies of Gew.98), that were arsenally upgraded to the K.29 short rifle configuration. Other than fitting a shorter barrel, the most obvious change was shortening of a Gew.98 style stock, to make it look like K.29 stock. The buttstock sling swivel was moved backwards and the hole was filled with a plug (please, see pictures). The front and rear sights were upgraded to the K29 standard. The rifle has a scarce, early production, two step receiver (please, see pictures). The receivers of this type were manufactured at the Warsaw arsenal only in the early 1920-s (1922-1924). The rifle has K98 style nosecap and barrel band! I believe that most wz.1898 rifles were upgraded either to K98, or wz.98-29 short rifle configurations (I have seen only two original wz.1898 rifles in the last 25 years!). This is a legitimate Polish arsenal conversion, not just wz.1898 rifle with K.29 stock (you can recognize this model by an old, wz.1898 style, receiver ring on K29 style stock). The rifle is marked on the receiver ring, "Polish Eagle, PFK WARSZAWA 1924" ("P.F.K." = Panstwowa Fabryka Karabinow = The State Rifle Factory in Warsaw, Poland, 1924). The left side of the receiver ring also displays small Polish Eagle. The left side of the receiver rail still displays an original model designation, "W 98". The right side of the buttstock displays Polish arsenal markings, a large letter "Z" (in a circle), and "Z. W. 3. 34" (in a rectangular; March 1934, a date when the rifle was upgraded to wz.98-29 configuration). The rifle comes with a Polish manufactured bolt displaying a Polish Eagle on the bolt handle (please, see pictures). Matching serial numbers, except for the bolt (the matching serial numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, buttplate, stock, handguard, rear sights, front sights, barrel band, nosecap, magazine floor plate, magazine follower and on the trigger guard; the bolt displays a mismatched number; there are no serial numbers stamped on all the remaining parts of the rifle). Fixed front sight with protective wings. The rear sights are calibrated from 300 meter to 2000 meter. Strong, 98-type action. Four sling swivels. The rifle was manufactured with a short finger groove in the forestock. Complete with the cleaning rod. Overall length is 43.5 inch. The barrel length is 23.75 inch. Hundreds of thousands of Polish rifles were captured by Nazis in 1939. They were promptly reissued to German forces. Some authors indicate that during the 1941 attack on the Soviet Union, captured Polish and Czechoslovak rifles constituted about half of all German rifles. Consequently, most of Polish rifles used in the Eastern Front were destroyed, or captured by the Soviets. Some Polish rifles were also used by Germans in the Western Front. The US soldiers captured some of them in Italy and France and brought them back to the USA. CONDITION: Fine. 78-80% of blue finish is still on metal. The balance is in white, mixed with some occasional light patina. Solid stock with some usual handling marks and light dings. Bore is in very good+ to low fine condition with decent rifling. Some darkness in the grooves. Strong action. All the internal parts of the rifle are in very good to fine condition, with no visible wear. All the markings and numbers are clearly visible on metal. No import markings. Very scarce Polish wz. 98-29 short rifle for the advanced Mauser collector! Very few of these rifles survived to these days!

DESCRIPTION: Relatively scarce Chinese Chiang Kai-Shek Mauser short rifle. Although several millions of rifles of this pattern were manufactured in China, not many survived to these days in decent condition.

Matching serial numbers (matching serial numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, bolt and on the bolt release lever). All the other parts of the rifle do not show any serial numbers.

CONDITION: Excellent+, may have been refurbished and rebarreled after the WWII (possibly unfired). 99%+ of very nice blue finish is still on metal.

Price: $2475

Inventory # mau _0685

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: Unusual German Kar. 98AZ style carbine in 6.9 x 57 mm caliber! The carbine has a very short, 17.25 inch barrel (rather than 23.2 inch long barrel found on K98AZ). The overall length of the carbine is only 37.25 inch (compare to 43 inch overall length of K98AZ). The lower part of the barrel (under the stock) displays following marking: "Crown over B, Crown over U, Crown over G, 6.9 mm 57, 4/27, Crown Stm G, N 11gr". Based on the markings, the carbine was built (or converted) in April 1927. The receiver ring displays the following abbreviation and number: "I. G. H. 096". The carbine has mismatched serial numbers.

The left side of the receiver rail displays model markings, "M.31" (only very early production rifles of this pattern were marked, "M.31", and not "kbk.S. wz.31"!). Wz. 1931 rifle was a standard Polish military trainer in the 1930-s. "Kbk.S" is a Polish language abbreviation that stands for, "karabinek sportowy" (sporting carbine).

Very Scarce Polish kbks Wz.1898 Mauser Training Rifle (Warsaw, 1928)

Caliber: .22 LR.

Price: $2675

Inventory # mau_0668

DESCRIPTION: Very scarce Polish kbks wz. 1898 training rifle in .22 LR caliber. "Kbks" is a Polish language abbreviation that stands for, "karabinek sportowy" (sporting carbine). Accordingly, "wz" (wzor) will translate to "model", or "pattern". Despite such a sporting nomenclature, kbks was used mainly as a military trainer for Polish recruits. Many such rifles were also given to various level schools and universities for student military training. Standard Polish trainer in the 1920-s and 1930-s. Originally, Polish made K98 in 7.92 mm Mauser caliber, later it was converted to single shot .22 LR trainer configuration. The magazine follower and spring were removed to allow only single shot action. The "empty" magazine served as a brass catcher (as in a number of other military training rifles). The bolt was modified accordingly for the .22 LR. The bolt is from the German Kar. 98 AZ, as indicated by markings under the handle. It was converted to .22 LR by one of the Polish arsenals, and marked with the Polish eagle on the handle (please, see pictures). It is quite common to see Imperial German bolts, usually from Kar.98AZ, or Gew.98, in early production Polish rifles. The action was rebarreled with newly manufactured .22 barrel. The rifle is marked on the receiver: "Polish Eagle, P.F.K. WARSZAWA 1928" ("P.F.K."=Panstwowa Fabryka Karabinow = The State Rifle Factory in Warsaw, Poland). The left side of the receiver displays, "K98" (model designation before the conversion). Manufactured without provision for the cleaning rod. The right side of the buttstock displays an interesting cartouche, "Eagle over a Shield with a Letter 'K' inside" (fading). Matching serial numbers, except for the buttplate (matching numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, nosecap, barrel band, front sights, rear sights, trigger guard and magazine floor plate; the number on the stock is fading and impossible to recognize; the bolt does not show a serial number; the number on the buttplate is close - but the first digit is '5' instead of '2' - error?). Four sling swivels. Later, some of the kbks Wz.1898 rifles (but not all) were marked on the hand guard with a large caliber designation, "22", that allowed Polish recruits to properly identify the rifle as a trainer. This rifle does not have such markings (I believe that these ".22" markings were not burned in wood by Polish arsenals, but rather by units/schools that used the rifles). Overall length is 43.25 inch. The barrel length is 24.75 inch. This rifle comes from my personal collection of Polish military firearms. CONDITION: Fine+ to low excellent. 92% of blue finish is still on metal. Some blue finish is turning to brownish color (mainly on the trigger guard and on the magazine floor plate). Occasional light patina/peppering on some metal parts. Some brown patina on the buttplate. Solid stock displays nice smooth finish with some light handling marks and dings. No cracks to wood. Wood was probably refurbished when the rifle was converted to .22 LR configuration, as the markings and numbers are fading. Bore is in fine condition. Strong action. Mechanically, the rifle is in excellent condition. All the internal parts of the rifle are in fine condition. All the markings and numbers on metal are clearly visible. The rifle is in all original condition, as brought from the war. No import markings. Very scarce Polish kbks wz. 1898 trainer! Serial# 21XX.

Inventory # mau_0663

DESCRIPTION: Beautiful and very scarce German Danzig factory Mauser M.1898 sporting rifle in 7.92 x 57 mm caliber. Manufactured by Gewehrfabrik Danzig shortly after the end of the Great War, as indicated by markings on the receiver rail and by the proof markings on the receiver ring. Sporting rifles of this pattern were manufactured in very limited numbers by the Danzig factory in 1918/1919. The lack of the military orders forced the Danzig factory to manufacture guns for the civilian market. Shortly after, the Danzig arsenal ceased to exist. Based on the Versailles Treaty all the machines were moved to Warsaw, Poland in 1920, in order to create the rifle factory there. The Danzig sporters utilized strong Kar.98AZ action with small ring receivers. Since Danzig sporters were arsenal made, they bear no commercial proofs, but Imperial German stamp, "Prussian Eagle" (stamped on the left side of the receiver ring, on the barrel under the wood, as well as on the bolt). Today, Danzig sporters are very difficult to find on the collector market, as very few were manufactured originally, and even less survived to these days. The receiver has German style scope mounts.The scope itself was manufactured by Dr. Walter Gerard in Charlottenburg, Germany, and is accordingly marked. Stepped, round barrel. Double set trigger. Military style stripper clip guides are machined into the back of the receiver. Internal box Mauser-style magazine. Fixed, European sporting style front sights. Two position, express style rear sights. Steel trigger guard. Walnut, sporting style half-stock with cheek-piece and semi- pistol grip. Beautiful diamond checkering at the wrist of the buttstock. Schnable forend. Mauser style safety lever is located on the back of the bolt. Turned down bolt handle. Steel buttplate. Two sporting style sling swivels. Manufactured with no provision for the cleaning rod. The four digit serial number indicates a limited production. All matching serial numbers (the matching serial numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, bolt, scope and scope mounts; all the remaining parts of the rifle do not display any numbers). The lower part of the buttstock displays a small crest of the city of Danzig, "Crown over two Crosses in the Shield". The right side of the buttstock displays the country of origins, "Germany". The rifle comes with an old leather sling. Overall length is 44 inch. The barrel length is 24 inch. CONDITION: Excellent. 95% of crisp, original blue finish is still on metal. The receiver has a somewhat fading and worn case coloring finish. The blue finish on the trigger guard is starting to turn to brownish color. There is one small spot of of light metal roughness on the trigger guard. Excellent bore with strong and shiny rifling. Strong and smooth action. Mechanically the rifle is in excellent condition, as well. All the internal parts of the rifle are in excellent condition, with no visible wear. The double set trigger is very sensitive.

Radom 1932"("F.B." = Fabryka Broni = The Arms Factory at Radom, Poland). The left side of the receiver rail displays model markings, "kbk.S. wz.31". Wz. 1931 rifle was a standard Polish military trainer in the 1930-s. "Kbk.s" is a Polish language abbreviation that stands for, "karabinek sportowy" (sporting carbine). Accordingly, "wz" (wzor) will translate to "model", or "pattern". Despite such a sporting nomenclature, kbks was used mostly as a military trainer for Polish recruits. Many such rifles were also given to various level schools and universities for student military training. Externally, the rifle is very similar to wz.1929 Mauser rifle, as it was meant to be a trainer for Polish army recruits. The dimensions and weight are also almost identical to those of wz.1929 rifle. All matching serial numbers (the matching serial numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, stock, buttplate, rear sights and bolt; other parts of the rifle do not have serial numbers, which is correct for this model). The serial number on the stock is fading, but still recognizable. All the serial numbers are factory original, and they were not restamped. The rifle has an original black baked enamel over phosphate finish on metal. Military style front sight with protective wings. Military style, adjustable rear sight calibrated from 20 to 100 meter. The rifle was manufactured with a short finger groove in the forestock. Steel buttplate and trigger guard. Polish Mauser style sling swivels (correct). Some Polish arsenal markings are stamped on the right side of the buttstock: "D" (in an octagon), "WB" (in a circle). The lower part of the buttstock also displays, "D" (in an octagon - stamped just behind the trigger guard). The bolt handle was bend down in German style, which may indicate that the rifle was used as a trainer by German military during the war. The cleaning rod and extractor are missing. Overall length is 43.25 inch. The barrel length is 24.50 inch. CONDITION: Fine. 94-95% of original finish is still on metal. Most of the finish wear is on the sharp edges of steel parts. Solid stock with some handling marks, light dings and small scratches. No cracks in wood. Wood has some kind of wax, or varnish finish, which is partially worn, most likely as a result of over cleaning. Excellent bore with strong and shiny rifling. Strong action. Mechanically the rifle is in excellent condition as well. All the internal parts of the rifle are in excellent condition, with no visible wear. No import markings.
