Persian Iran 98/29 Mauser Long Rifle 8X57 Like New All Matching With Matching Bayonet No Import Marks

This beautiful Mauser was made for Iran by the Czechoslovakians (to their usual superb quality standard) at the famous Brno factory in the early 1930's under contract with the Persian government. The 98/29 was among the world's most advanced infantry rifles at the time having been modelled on the vz.24, itself a refinement of the timeless Gewehr 98 design. Most were imported in the 1970s and have import marks but this one came in before that time and has no import marks (it does have a translated serial number). It comes with its original, matching serial number bayonet and features a 29.13 barrel with integral front sight protectors, bright bolt, tangent rear sight with graduations to 2000 meters, sling and stacking swivels, cleaning rod and finger groove stock with smooth, bright butt plate. Its in remarkable condition with no import marks other than the translation of the Farsi serial number neatly applied on the right side of the receiver bridge (all other markings are in Farsi). It is all matching (receiver, bolt, stock & bayonet) and it never saw any service as its in truly like new condition retaining 99% original blue with a scratch on the receive ring and slight edge thinning and a thin scratch or two on the bottom metal the sight, rear swivel, bolt stop and action screws collectively retain 98% original straw color. Bright parts (bolt, rear sight mast, cleaning rod & band spring) are 99% bright collectively. The bore is perfectly bright, smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling. The nicely figured stock is completely sound with what would have to be called thinly scattered light to moderate handling marks. Only scant evidence can be found of it having been fired at all. The bayonet is also in spectacular condition with its original edge, 99% bright finish, completely sound scales with only light handling marks and 98% original blue on the scabbard. A real stunner that would shine in any superior Mauser collection.
