    Default "Nazi" gew

    Hi. This is a matching 1916 Oberbdorf. The only Nazi thing about it is a WaA on the keel. I would have thought there would be more marketing on the metal. Any chance this is ok? Thanks!

    It's a Nazi gewehr?

    Cool does it come with its Party Book and all?

    Sorry, just drives me crazy when people label them as "Nazi" rifles...

    By extension, any rifles produced in the US during WWII are "Democrat" rifles, amirite?

    That is a German Depot marking the rifle was probably upgraded in the 30s. Judging by the bolt I can tell it's blued where it should be in the white for imperial era, part of the Depot process. More pictures will tell more they may have replaced the barrel as well.

    Hard to make out the picture of the depot stamp you'll have to get a closer picture so I can tell you which Depot did the work. By the way what are they asking for this rifle if the price is fair be well worth it to pick it up.

    Really taking a closer look at the picture I believe it's a HZaJt3 marking for Ingolstadt

    I think your right. Under a magnifying glass there is definitely a "Z" in the code. So depots had funky inspection stamps like these?

    I don't recall the price exactly but its definitely north of 1000.

    To tell you the truth that's not a bad price for a rifle like this I find these quite interesting.

    That is a very interesting Gew98M. Definitely an HZa Ingolstadt rework, with an interesting unit mark also.
