The numbers that appear to be 992 are more likely to be the first 3 numbers of the rifle it was matched to. You will find the manufacturers code to be on the blade near the hilt. The codes are here, There may also be markings on the scabbard I checked with another text I have, The German Bayonet (A comprehensive Illustrated history of the regulation patterns 1871-1945) by John Walther. You are lucky, wartime production should be easy to identify, try one from say 1912, very complicated.

You appear to have the correct bayonet frog and I would give it a value of $250 plus.

The only thing I know about these k98's is back in the early 80's I had a job Bastardising them from military to sporterizing them for "Phil I" at the Tarragindi Gun Shop. Great deal did a heap and swapped it for a new in the grease M21 with the Redfield ART Scope setup..
Ahhhhhhhhhhh the good old days were you could shoot and no one was fazed with what you shot and where you shot as long as you keep it safe....

S/42 Mauser-Werke AG, Oberndorf a./N, early code It was made in 1937. I'll do a bit more research tomorrow. If you look at an earlier post, I gave a link to the German Ordinance Codes. in case I'm wrong about the S/42.See if the rifle has an X on it anywhere, if it does this means its a "Russian Capture"., This is general information,

Karabiner 98k[edit]


The Karabiner 98k "Mauser" (often abbreviated "K98k" or "Kar98k"), adopted in the mid- 1930s, became the most common infantry rifle in service in the German Army during World War II. The design was developed from the Karabiner 98b, one of the carbines developed from the Model 1898. The K98k was first adopted by the Wehrmacht in 1935 as their standard issue rifle, with many older versions being converted and shortened.


No Russian capture 'X' on that one beemer , i have another one that is a Russian capture.

I am no 98 expert but it looks to have post 1968 German proof marks. It also looks to have been re-blued but would like to hear other opinions!

Oh dear, how sad....never mind.
