SHORT FN ETHIOPIAN MAUSER 98

A super rare Abyssinian Model 1924 Short rifle with extended Handguard and 1924 barrel band.

The rifle has all markings like the Abyssinian Crest on top of the receiver and the Lion of Juda on the left side of the receiver. Serial numbers are engraved in large numbers on the back part of the receiver.

These rifles were never imported before to the US. Only a extreme small quantity is available. The condition is fair. Please take a look at the pictures.



* About the Grading -The rifles have dents, dings, scrapes, gouges, discoloration and possible small cracks in the stocks. You can also expect anywhere from minimal bluing wear to a lot of bluing wear, and we have even seen some surface rust on a few. We have not seen any rust that would not clean up well. We do offer a hand select for cosmetics that will offer you one of the nicer looking ones if that is your desire but please know that even a hand select is not going to be gorgeous.... just one of the better ones in the group.
Now for the good news, as we said before these rifles have been stored intact in a military depot for quite some time. As such, they are as close to true military turn in Mauser rifles as I have ever seen. By that I mean that they do not appear to be parted together " Frankenstein " guns. Also know, that while we do not guarantee for matching numbers we have seen some that do match. In addition to that, these are very consistent in color and as a group have a certain uniformity about them that makes them appear to be true military turn in's which I am certain that they are. As a matter of fact, in that manner they are very similar to our Chinese military turn in SKS rifles.
We do not warranty for cosmetic's as we have tried to be as honest as possible in describing these rifles. As such, if the possibility of receiving a rifle that is less than a beauty queen is a deal breaker, then don't order one. However, we do warranty them for function and we think that they are a tremendous value as they are as close to military turn-in's as we have ever seen for long stored Mauser's.
Don't let my overly honest description of the rifles fool you. We always try to allow for the lower end in the bunch when describing our surplus because let's face it, someone is going to get the ugliest one there. Having said that, these rifles have not been as readily available in the U.S. marketplace for several years now and we are proud to be able to offer them at what we think is a fantastic price. Get yours today.

No Mauser collection is complete without the addition of one of these rare Banner rifles. .... Don't Miss This.......C & R Eligible
Important - As noted above these are arsenal turn in rifles and while we have done a dry function test here before shipping, the rifles have not had the bores cleaned nor have they been checked by a gunsmith. As with all surplus firearms the rifle should be thoroughly cleaned before firing. Also, please be sure that the bore is clear and unobstructed. Finally, a good rule of thumb with any surplus is to have your local gunsmith do a safety check before attempting to fire.

4 of 5 Fantastic find! March 15, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
My carbine arrived, and carries very nice markings and matching numbers.  These guns are next to impossible to find outside of this import.  However, there are a few drawbacks.  The bore is toast.  A .323 diameter projectile falls about 2.5 inches down the muzzle before catching any rifling.  While I would bet that this carbine is safe to shoot, the proverbial broadside of the barn is safe from this one.  Next, I would strongly suggest trying to contact RTI and have them send you pictures of the exact one you will receive.  For the money on these guns, you better get eyes on the exact one you will be purchasing.  I found the staff to be rather helpful and accommodating when I was inquiring for my purchase.
