    Default Kar 98 AZ Police Sniper

    Hi all

    I know somebody dont think this even exist.

    But is it posible that some of this rifles can bee build local by different policeforce in the Weimar republic?

    Reason too ask is one are for sale in our historical shooting Club.

    It belonged to a old menber who sadly are past away.

    Now his son want to sell his rifles. Include one of these rifles.

    I have seen the rifle some times over the years buy never seen him shoot it.
    Too me it have always seen to be original but I did not know what it was. I want to take an extra look at this rifle. So what to look fore?

    This old member do not have any special rifles and have never clamed that this rifles should bee anything special. Exept that hee have own it in many many years.

    Price asked are not high at all.

    Next to nothing is known about Police sniper rifles.
    They had some Köhler scopes with SSR mounted on the K98k.
    Before that, they had some scoped rifles in their armored vehicles. What rifle? I don't know.
    In the late 1920's they ordered some (6) K98b with Zielvier scopes.
    I did not come across any scoped K98(AZ) or documents about it.
    Photos would be most helpful.

    Thanks

    Hi all

    Here are pictures from the seller

    Thats all for now

    As far I can see it is a Danzig made rifle. Early without grasping groves.
    Rear sling atachment ? should it not goo through the stock?

    Bold handel?

    No scope marking visible on this fotos. But can bee on top.
    Scope mount looks right too me.

    Price asked around : $ 950

    Hope for any input before I contact the seller.

    Looks like a typical hunter conversion (and therefore nothing military or police). It is a Suhler Claw mount. I would not dare shooting with it - it is the small ring Mauser action which therefore has less safety, additionally it has had a scope base dovetailed into the receiver.

    I totally agree with "Absolut".
    The scope seems to be a prewar Goerz Certar 4.5x.
    But there is a stamp on the left receiver I would like to see a close up of.
    Thanks

    Most intersting! Thanks.
    I have no idea what that stamp represents.
    Looks like "DK" or "IDK", or .... ? Neither makes sense.
    If you have the chance to take some close ups showing the barrel markings or any other markings on the gun, it might be helpful.
    Thanks

    All the pictures are from sellers anounse.

    But maby an other member in our historical
