    My First Mauser K98 BCD 42 Russian Capture

    This is my First Mauser, Even though it's a Russian Capture I have grown fond of it. Not much to say really, numbers don't match, the stock is nice and it shoots great. I am not sure what the zig zag mark is just above the 42 on the receiver and there are a few other marking I am not sure of. I do know it was made in 1942 at the Gustloff-Werke factory in Weimar Germany.

    bcd 42 Receiver with a rune (not sure what that means)
    avk 41 barrel (avk 77 41 bys)

    I thought the RC's all had the swastikas peened? Either way, very nice looking rifle!

    Not all, just some of them were defaced.

    To the poster the Z rune is really an S for SS troops. Note the spelling for rune, ruin is a destroyed building or civilization. That said, nice looking Mauser rifle, congrats.

    apparently Z on the bayonet means Waffenwerke Bruenn.

    the single rune on the rifle indicated they were made under SS supervision Different thing then the Z on the bayonet.

    Another nice rifle. I am half heartedly looking for a K98 to go with my Garand and M1 Carbine. I think they would make a great set.

    Why is there a Kriegsmarine flag in the photo? Was it a navy capture?
