This is a Czech Mauser 98/22 and is in pretty good condition. I can only find one serial number and thats on the receiver ring.

Nice score. I appears to be in great condition.

I had a little trouble reading the numbers on that rear sight leaf, though. ;)

You were looking at it upside down.

In Germany and Czech, and most likely all of Europe, you register the barrel. The barrel is the gun. The serial number on the Mauser is what I report on the paperwork to the weapons registry (Feds). This law causes problems for caliber conversion kits. A hunter can only own two handguns. If you buy a .357 Sig barrel for your Glock 22, you have just used up your two handgun limit. Rifles are unlimited, but you have to go through all the red tape and fees for a second barrel/conversion barrel. Nice Mauser by the way. Very accurate and durable guns. Enjoy.

From what I can find out, after WW1 and the collapse of the Hapsburg monarchy the State of Czechoslovakia was founded and the 98/22 was one of the first weapons they produced. But it wasn't long before like a lot of nations at that time they decided to go with short rifles and started producing the VZ23 and VZ24. They continued to manafacture the 98/22 for a number more year and sold most of those to Turkey thus the Turkish or Farsi numbers on the rear sight that Orangello was having trouble deciphing. :D
