+1 on blued bolt on the K98 model.
OTOH there were numerous M98 model mausers
with bright bolt. But the rifle in question here
is the K98.
good shooting, dxr
P.S. I would steer clear of Mitchell's K98 rifles. They
have been "spun" and the bright condition of the
bolt is only one thing that they've done to these
guns. I second the recommendation to pick up a
nice Yugo K98. Or a nice Russian refurb, which is
what these Mitchell guns where before they got a
hold of them and spun them in their t*rd polishing
factory. They cannot be looked at as "restorations"
because they have been altered to an image that
never existed historically. Not a good investment.
