    Default 1938 k98ss elite

    Greetings fellow enthusiasts,

    First of all thanks for putting together Mauser Walhalla. However exhaustive, I couldn't find anything on this rifle I recently came across. The owner told me that it was made by Mauser in Borsigwalde (code 243) in a limited run. According to a big collector it was used by the LAH for parades. Anyone out there with some history on this piece?

    Best regards,

    Sorry, it is a post-war fake. The barrel has been cut short, and mated to what looks like a Yugoslavian(?) stock. If you haven't bought it, don't. If you have, get your money back.

    I have to agree with Ryan, pure fantasy. If someone told you that I would ask him to show you some documentation or photo evidence of it.

    I still love that picture... EVERY darned WW2 firearm you can think of, coupled with a Hakim and Vz52, and even a Spanish M43....

    Mp44, Beretta thingy, Hakim, Carcano, Vz52, M14, M43 and a MAS49/56

    BTW, I can assure you the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler used standard weapons, not bubba abortion creations like this one.

    Vulch, you are dead wrong. Everybody knows (or should know by now) that for parade the LAH used nickle-plated Gew 98Ms with gold-plated bolts, bands, and buttplates, Philippine mahogany stocks, the the butt firing pin takedown washer replaced by a gold-plated disk with the SS runes in black, the LAH cypher in German silver inlaid into the right side of the butt behind the takedown washer and white leather slings to match their white leather belts and bayonet frogs. See: Munchausen, Sonderwaffen der Waffen-SS, Dresden, Walpurgis, 1955, pp. 508-621.

    Hey guys,

    Thank's for the quick replies. Have any of you ever seen this rifle before? And if so in what context?

    Best regards,
