DESCRIPTION: Very scarce Polish pre-World War Two M. 1931 single shot military trainer! The rifle displays following markings on the receiver: "Polish Eagle, F.B. Radom 1932"("F.B." = Fabryka Broni = The Arms Factory at Radom, Poland).

Wz. 1931 rifle was a standard Polish military trainer in the 1930-s. "Kbk.S" is a Polish language abbreviation that stands for, "karabinek sportowy" (sporting carbine).

Matching serial numbers, except for the extractor (the matching serial numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, buttplate, rear sights and bolt; the extractor displays a mismatched serial number; other parts of the rifle do not have serial numbers).

The black baked enamel on the receiver is mostly gone, the phosphate finish is still there. Nice, solid stock with some handling marks. Wood may have been refurbished long time ago (there is no serial number visible on the stock, and all the markings are fading). Excellent bore with strong and shiny rifling. Strong action.

Very Scarce Polish kbks Wz.1898 Mauser Training Rifle (Warsaw, 1928)

Caliber: .22 LR.

Price: $2675

Inventory # mau_0668

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: Very scarce Polish kbks wz. 1898 training rifle in .22 LR caliber. "Kbks" is a Polish language abbreviation that stands for, "karabinek sportowy" (sporting carbine). Accordingly, "wz" (wzor) will translate to "model", or "pattern". Despite such a sporting nomenclature, kbks was used mainly as a military trainer for Polish recruits. Many such rifles were also given to various level schools and universities for student military training. Standard Polish trainer in the 1920-s and 1930-s. Originally, Polish made K98 in 7.92 mm Mauser caliber, later it was converted to single shot .22 LR trainer configuration. The magazine follower and spring were removed to allow only single shot action. The "empty" magazine served as a brass catcher (as in a number of other military training rifles). The bolt was modified accordingly for the .22 LR. The bolt is from the German Kar. 98 AZ, as indicated by markings under the handle. It was converted to .22 LR by one of the Polish arsenals, and marked with the Polish eagle on the handle (please, see pictures). It is quite common to see Imperial German bolts, usually from Kar.98AZ, or Gew.98, on early production Polish rifles. The action was rebarreled with newly manufactured .22 barrel. The rifle is marked on the receiver: "Polish Eagle, P.F.K. WARSZAWA 1928" ("P.F.K."=Panstwowa Fabryka Karabinow = The State Rifle Factory in Warsaw, Poland). The left side of the receiver displays, "K98" (model designation before the conversion). Manufactured without provision for the cleaning rod. The right side of the buttstock displays an interesting cartouche, "Eagle over a Shield with a Letter 'K' inside" (fading). Matching serial numbers, except for the buttplate (matching numbers are stamped on the receiver, barrel, nosecap, barrel band, front sights, rear sights, trigger guard and magazine floor plate; the number on the stock is fading and impossible to recognize; the bolt does not show a serial number; the number on the buttplate is close - but the first digit is '5' instead of '2' - error?). Four sling swivels. Later, some of the kbks Wz.1898 rifles (but not all) were marked on the hand guard with a large caliber designation, "22", that allowed Polish recruits to properly identify the rifle as a trainer. This rifle does not have such markings (I believe that these ".22" markings were not burned in wood by Polish arsenals, but rather by units/schools that used the rifles). Overall length is 43.25 inch. The barrel length is 24.75 inch. This rifle comes from my personal collection of Polish military firearms. CONDITION: Fine+ to low excellent. 92% of blue finish is still on metal. Some blue finish is turning to brownish color (mainly on the trigger guard and on the magazine floor plate). Occasional light patina/peppering on some metal parts. Some brown patina on the buttplate. Solid stock displays nice smooth finish with some light handling marks and dings. No cracks to wood. Wood was probably refurbished when the rifle was converted to .22 LR configuration, as the markings and numbers are fading. Bore is in fine condition. Strong action. Mechanically, the rifle is in excellent condition. All the internal parts of the rifle are in fine condition. All the markings and numbers on metal are clearly visible. The rifle is in all original condition, as brought from the war. No import markings. Very scarce Polish kbks wz. 1898 trainer! Serial# 21XX.
