Assuming there is nothing stuck down in the hole, you could have a cleaning rod for another rifle. The K.98k cleaning rod is just a bit over 10" long.

Also, prior to 1939, the front sight bases didn't have the grooves for the sight hood, so yours wouldn't have had a hood.

so that means it was never meant to have a sight hood?

Exactly. Your rifle was never meant to have a hood.
