German WWI MauSer Gew.98, made at the Spandau Arsenal. Unless rebarreled, it will be in 7.92x57. What else you need to know?

Its a WW1 gew98 and should be chambered in 8mm Mauser. That marking in the triangle is a Polish marking. Could you post some full length photos of the rifle?

full length photos

Here's the full length photos you can't read the tape measure, but it is 38 inches overall length and barrel is 29 inches. It was inherited by my Dad from a close friend the stock was all busted and broke and discarded before we got it. I would like to know if I can get a synthetic stock or do I have to go with a wood stock.

Either wood or synthetic stock can be found to fit your barreled action.

You might be able to find an original 98 stock. Check Gunbroker.com

I would highly recommend restoring that one. Polish marked Gew98's are not common at all. All the missing military parts for your rifle can be found and its a very simple restoration since the barrel has not been cut.

Excellent decision. If you need any help finding parts just send me a message. I recently restored two Gew98's that were in similar condition.
