A remarkable history
This rifle was born in 1940 in the factories of Nazi Germany. It was a tool of hatred and oppression. But eventually one of those particularly Jewish miracles possessed it.
Sometime late in that decade, after Hitler's evil was crushed, this rifle and others like it found their way to the hands of Jewish liberators in Palestine. The Jews of America and Britain paid to purchase the guns and smuggle them to their brothers and sisters in the Middle East, defying a British embargo. Most of the Mausers that found their covert way to Israel were Czechoslovakian. This rifle is one of the rare few remaining that were made for Hitler and transformed by Jews.
This very rifle might have fought battles for the Haganah, Irgun, Betar, or LEHI. Whichever liberation forces it served, it helped carve the nation of Israel out of chaos. This Mauser fought victoriously against the Five Great Arab Armies -- armies that were equipped by the governments of England and the Soviet Union. Eventually this weapon joined its brothers as both the official battle rifle and sniper rifle of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

It served faithfully through the 1970s, when it was retired. Even into the 1990s, Mauser Karabiner 98s like this one continued to protect Jews as sniper rifles of the Israeli Civilian Guard.
This rifle -- which you could soon hold in your own hands -- came through its battles in beautiful condition. Although it would make an impression hanging on a wall next to your personalized Certificate of History, it's no museum piece. It remains a sturdy, durable shooter that any gun owner or student of history would be proud to own.
