DESCRIPTION: Beautiful Polish wz.29 Radom Mauser sporting rifle. The rifle was part of a well known Polish firearms collection of Mr. Revolinski of Cody, Wyoming (purchased by my family member in 1992). It was custom built for Mr. Revolinski by a famous American gunmaker Paul Jaeger. The latter first operated in Jenkintown, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, and them moved to Tennessee. His rifles are highly prized on both, collector and sporting markets. He is no longer in business. The rifle was converted to a high-grade sporter from a standard military wz.29 configuration. There are following markings on the receiver ring: "Polish Eagle, F.B. Radom 1935"("F.B." = Fabryka Broni = The Arms Factory in Radom, Poland). The right side of the receiver ring also displays small Polish Eagle. The left side of the receiver and barrel still displays Polish matching serial numbers. The bolt, bolt release lever and trigger guard also display original, matching serial numbers. The magazine floor plate displays a mismatched serial number (a Nazi occupation, Radom made part with "Eagle 77"). No serial numbers are stamped on the remaining parts of the rifle. Strong, 98-type action. The rifle still has original Radom manufactured barrel in 7.92 x 57 mm caliber. Beautiful, high-gloss blue finish. Original, Radom manufactured bolt, was modified in a sporting style (the bolt handle was turned down; checkering was added on the ball; faded Polish Eagle is still visible on the ball; Polish arsenal markings are present on the handle). Custom, Paul Jaeger's trigger mechanism. The left side of the trigger displays a name, "Jaeger". Sporting style safety lever displays markings, "Mark II". Lyman micro-adjustable rear sights were installed on the back of the receiver. Sporting style, ramped beaded blade front sights. Two sporting style sling swivels. The rifle comes complete with the SPI 4 x 32 M. 564 scope. Custom, quick release scope mount with the following maker address, "Paul Jaeger - Jenkintown, PA". One piece, sporting style, custom walnut half-stock with a large cheek-piece and a pistol grip. Diamond checkering at the wrist of the buttstock and in the middle of the length of the forestock. Pachmayr "White Line" rubber buttplate. High quality of machining and metal finish! Overall length is 42.75 inch. The barrel length is 21.75 inch. The rifle comes with a decorative, Western style leather sling. CONDITION: Near mint. 99%+ of very nice, high gloss blue finish on metal. Beautiful and solid stock with no handling marks (mint!). Bore is in low excellent condition with strong and shiny rifling. Strong action. Mechanically the rifle is in perfect condition. All the internal parts of the rifle are in excellent condition, with no visible wear. All the markings and numbers are clearly visible on metal. Very handsome Paul Jaeger's Polish wz.29 sporting rifle! I have not seen another Paul Jaeger custom sporter built on a Polish Radom wz.29 action. I have no doubt that this was Mr. Revolinski's favorite hunting rifle! The rifle comes from my family member collection of military firearms (please, pay by check, money order, or bank wire transfer only). Serial# 292XXP.

Unusual German Kar. 98AZ Style Mauser Carbine (6.9 x 57 mm)

Caliber: 6.9 x 57 mm

Price: $1650

Inventory # mau _0685

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: Unusual German Kar. 98AZ style carbine in 6.9 x 57 mm caliber! The carbine has a very short, 17.25 inch barrel (rather than 23.2 inch long barrel found on K98AZ). The overall length of the carbine is only 37.25 inch (compare to 43 inch overall length of K98AZ). The lower part of the barrel (under the stock) displays following marking: "Crown over B, Crown over U, Crown over G, 6.9 mm 57, 4/27, Crown Stm G, N 11gr". Based on the markings, the carbine was built (or converted) in April 1927. The receiver ring displays the following abbreviation and number: "I. G. H. 096". The carbine has mismatched serial numbers. Other than, "096" there is no serial number on the receiver. The bolt does not have a serial number. The right side of the buttstock displays a number, "86". The trigger guard and magazine floor plate displays some old Imperial German numbers and markings. The front sight and nosecap display a number "36". The follower displays, "47". The left side of the receiver ring displays, "Crown over B, Crown over U". No provision for the cleaning rod. 98AZ style bolt with with turned down bolt handle. Early style stock with no finger groove. Other than the number on the right side of the buttstock, there are no markings on wood. Tangent rear sight calibrated from 100 to 1200 meter. K98AZ style side sling swivels. I assume that the sling swivels in the lower part of the stock were added after the carbine left the factory. Somewhat similar, German post-WWI police carbine (in cut-away version), is pictured in Ball's book on Mauser on page 293 (second edition). CONDITION: Very good+ to low fine. 60% of thin, original blue finish is still on metal. The balance is in white, mixed with some light patina. The blue is turning to brownish color in some places. The barrel band shows some scratches, or tool marks. The buttplate shows some brown patina. Solid stock with some handling marks, dings and scratches. The handguard shows some wear. Bore is well used with little rifling left. Strong action. Mechanically, the carbine is in very good/fine condition. All the internal parts of the carbine are in very good/fine condition, with only minor service wear. The markings and numbers are still visible on metal. No import markings. Unusual German Kar. 98AZ style carbine in 6.9 x 57 mm caliber! Serial# 0XX.
