Custom German KAR 98 In 270 Winchester Post War

This fine rifle is typical of the kind made to order for occupying American troops by some of the best gunsmiths in Germany after WWII. A blend of American and classic European tastes it started with an Erfurt 1918 KAR 98 action with the bolt handle swept back and configured to American tastes and finishing in a flatted and checkered knob. The 24 barrel is tapered and mounts a ramped front base supporting a Marble No. 52 front brass bead and a King adjustable rear sight, jeweled bolt body, extractor, striker, bolt stop and magazine follower, receiver drilled and tapped for receiver sight, classic German checkered stock with shadow lined cheek piece, Prince Albert grip, Schnabel forend, peaked steel butt plate and American style QD sling swivel studs. Its in excellent condition retaining greater than 98% blue with just a little edge thinning here and there while the bore is perfect; bright, smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stock is completely sound with only a few handling marks. A rifle that made a returning vet a happy hunter while a German gunsmith got to feed his family.
