    Default Waffenfabrik Mauser A-G Oberndorf a/N 1915

    Picked this one up many years ago. The barrel has been counter-bored and the "ski jump" part of the rear sight does not match. The sling is pretty cool.

    What a beauty! Thanks for sharing. I'd be proud to own it.

    Looks like it was reworked at Maintz (#6 on buttplate) at some point. Might be where the rear sight was replaced.

    VERY cool interwar navy sling too!

    Nice rifle, thanks for the "Bring & Brag". A nice WWI has avoided me so far, hopefully someday.

    I agree, Peter's rifle is beautiful in its originality and condition, which isn't all that easy to find for any 1915. That sling is something too, pretty damn desirable! All the acceptance stamps fit trends perfectly, which is good because you expect that of WMO and DWM.

    Nice, love that wood. I'd say that stock disk has been flipped...
