Did the germans retain any sniper rifles in the early postwar period? I bought a g98 from Navy arms back in '97. The stock appears to be for a sniper,but it has what looks to be a 1920 mark under the edge of the left stock disc. JL

Referring to post ww1. The rifle stock appears to be a 1916 or earlier that had the takedown discs added to the stock after 1920 as the left disc is partly covering it, and it does not have finger grooves. The cutout for the bolt handle looks original to me. I don't know of any other types (than snipers) that would have the bolt cutout with bottom swivels. JL

This bolt came in the rifle with the above stock. It has matching # except shroud no #. It seems to be either a sniper bolt or a kar98b conversion ? JL
