Rare Rare Rare,

NEVER IMPORTED INTO THE US BEFORE!

Czech made K.98 K last war production with large winter trigger. These rifles were manufactured on German equipment in Czechoslovakia, at Brno and the Banská Bystrica plant. The codes are dot 45, swp 45 and dou 45.

The rifles were made for export to Ethiopia for the emperor Haile Selassie . The rifles are identical to the German made K.98K but instead of the NAZI eagle the rifles have the Czech lion stamped on the receiver and barrel.

Also the firearms have the “St. George” coin embedded in the stock as a symbol for Ethiopia. These guns were not known to exist. They are nowhere found in any literature.

The condition is good to very good. All rifles feature the large winter trigger magazine, a laminated stock and the late war stamped bands.

Overall we would say that these guns average about 50% of original bluing. These guns have been in Africa for 75 years and are in 100% original condition. Again these guns were not known to exist and are extremely rare. We only have a small quantity of these rifles available.

We do offer a hand select in which we will pick the best of 20 from any particular group.

This is a must for every collector.

5 of 5 Worth it December 13, 2020
Reviewer: Luke from Minnesota  
I read some unhappy reviews but I went for it anyway. I wanted a another Mauser and the price was fair.  Took a week to process my order and it was delivered a week after processing.  Rifle was dirty inside and out as I expected.  Stock is solid, minor rust, blueing about 60%, barrel is pretty good after a long soaking and scrub, markings( waffenamt,lion and DOU 1945) are crisp.  A nice little project and I am very happy with the rifle and company.

4 of 5 Good value, shooter grade November 30, 2020
Reviewer: Isaac from Indiana  
I picked up this kar98 and was pleasantly surprised with the condition considering the price I paid and some of the reviews about these ethiopian surplus guns, the top handguard piece was cracked which I don't mind too much. the gun was very rusty it took me at least half an hour to get the rust off but thankfully most of it was light surface rust. What was really cool was that this rifle had waffenamts and czech lion proof marks as well as blood stains. The bore is in good shape which is likely because the previous owner obviously didn't get much use out of it. Overall definitely a good purchase but I got lucky no doubt about it

5 of 5 CZECH K98K (ETHIOPIA) August 27, 2020
Reviewer: Shawn from Washington  
I was pleasantly surprised at how fast the order was processed and shipped. The stock is grimy (expected) and has some dings but no cracks. The receiver and bolt have matching numbers with a good amount of bluing – I lucked out since I didn’t pay extra to guarantee matching numbers. The bore is full of gunk and home to a few spiders, but not surprising based on the storage conditions. I'll need to replace the butt plate, but overall, very happy with the purchase. Thanks!
