A picture from a few summers ago of my most prized rifle. It is a German Kar98a made in Erfurt in 1918.  It was a take home from the Great War, as it has no import markings of any kind. All serial numbers are matching save the safety, which seems to belong to a different type of k98. Judging by the deep scratches and marks in the furniture of the rifle, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if my rifle were used in combat at some point, especially seeing as how the shorter kar98a was issued to many frontline storm troops for its greater maneuverability.  I inherited it from my grandfather after he passed away. At close to 100 years old, it still shoots like a dream. The factory stamp on the rifle is the namesake for my blog.
