Here is the Iraque marked Czech 98 Mauser I picked up last week for $275.
The bore is a little dark but has strong rifling.

Looks like Bubba Akmed did his handy work on the rear band and buttstock. I guess he was out of K98 slings.

I've shot a few rounds through it and it fuctions fine.

Many thanks for Posting... Beautiful Wood..

Never realized those stamps were Iraqi... I was aware of the Royal Iraqi crest ones,, But never these..

By the way that modified sling mount is wonderful

Any background history on these???

Fed Ord imported most if not all of the Iraqi marked Mauser rifles back in the late 80's. That ia about all I know.
