As I found this mauser must be of those which are assembled after ww2 in czech,brno.between 1945-1950.In these models the trigger guard is different,for winter use.as mine was but I myself modified that.some WW2 german marked parts are found mixed with new production parts in this modells as It is seen from different markings(the stamp on the bolt must be german and is different from the other stamps on the receiver).
Your stock should not have the take down disk, instead it should have a hole on the cupped butt plate like this one.
This is a 1945 DOU stamped post war Czech. It is called a semi Kreigs model. The Winter trigger gaurd was used on all Czech K98's later in the war. Post war Czech models returned to the use of the bayonet lug and cleaning rod.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.

Yes exactly,it had not the take down disk, instead it had a hole on the cupped butt plate,the bayonet lug and cleaning rod was also there, but I removed them all.This rifle never dissapointed me in shooting so far but the grooves only at the muzzle are not that much clear and distinct,is this due to fatigue or it is normal?
