As one of only 3,456 made by ERMA WERKE in 1935, this is the lowest number of K98k's made in any one year by any factory ever & means this rifle is one of just 0.025% of total K98k production!

For the serious collector who knows what it is, this extraordinary very early production Kar98k manufactured by Erfurter Machinenfabrik Berthold Geipel (ERMA) is offered for pre-sale.

ERMA was the third of four manufacturers of K98k's in 1935 & went on to produce a very limited number of them, making these highly collectable.

This actual rifle was made in 1935 as identified by the markings on the receiver ring. S/27 was the German secret code at the time for ERMA & G indicated 1935 as the year of manufacture. Letter coding as a means of identifying year of manufacture only lasted a few years before the actual year was stamped instead which is why 'G' & 'K' code K98's are highly desirable.

'G' & 'K' code K98's are highly valued by serious collectors, both for their uniqueness but also relatively few were made. ERMA made the least number of rifles this year out of all four factories this year followed only by Mauser Werke Borsigwalde who made 7,671.

In 1941 Erma changed over to the factory code of 'ax' before they stopped making rifles completely to concentrate on MP40 machine pistols.

If you collect K98 rifles you will know examples of these seldom come on the open market & you should not pass it up.

Serial numbers were issued in batches of 10,000 with a letter suffix. As only 3,456 were made by ERMA in 1935 there is no suffix as this literally means this rifle was the 1,457th made that year!

It looks all correct although it appears to have a laminate stock with the correct flat butt plate & all milled parts. It presents as all original & is in great condition as can be seen in the photos with the wood very good with minimal marks & it has most of the original blue still present.  The bore is excellent, so definitely a shooter.

This is a fantastic example of a hard to obtain early K98k rifle in this outstanding original condition so don't delay if you are a serious collector, another may never again be available in Australia.

It is currently awaiting import from Germany in our next consignment due to arrive in Australia before Christmas & is now available for purchase with a deposit by the knowledgeable collector.

This bears all the hallmarks of Hans, Johann or Fritz greasing it up before hiding it after the war where it sat for decades before coming onto the collectors market in 2020 Munich.

Do your own research & you will see that this great example of a 'unicorn Kar98k' would make an excellent addition to any serious Mauser collection or a damn great start to one.

These are the only photos at this time so please view them carefully as they form the main description & override all written information. You can wait for more & take the chance it will be sold (which history shows it will be) or make your decision based on what you see & be the lucky one who adds this outstanding & rare Kar98k to their collection.

Whilst we check these out for serviceability, the warranty has expired & these are sold on an as is basis.

As with all used guns, we recommend you have this checked by a suitably qualified person prior to shooting.
