I have a Mauser it has MOD 98 stamped on the receiver and on top of the bolt release a small eagle and the numbers 280 under it next to that is a larger 07. Also on the side of the receiver hood is V.R, 69. Can you help in identifying this rifle?
It started out as a WW2 German K98 rifle.
It could be anything at this point. the V.R.69 is not a German mark that I know of.
I really need pictures to figure out what it is.
Any other marks on the top of the receiver??
it has a crest with what looks like wings with a star on top
