H024372 K98 RIFLE BUTT PLATE. (Gewehrkolben Platte)

BACKGROUND: The K98 rifle evolved from the WWI Mauser Gew 98 model with slight modifications. The main modification was the shortening of the rifle. Due to restrictions of the Versailles Treaty the K98, wasn’t actual produced in Germany until 1934, although the Mauser company had licensed out production rights to other European countries. Originally the K98's were constructed with good quality walnut stocks and tooled steel fittings but as the war progressed these were replaced by cheaper beech wood and ply wood stocks and stamped metal fittings.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Early to mid-war, heavy, tooled steel construction, K98 rifle stock butt plate. The plate is well marked with a stamped serial number, "1021", and a small Waffen-amt stamp to the obverse.
