Looking for my Dad's Mauser
My dad, Abbott Craft was a Staff Sargeant in the US Army stationed in Linz Austria after WWII. During that time he purchased some guns to be brought back to the US. One of those guns was a K98 Mauser, S/N 2359 that he purchased February 20, 1948 (according to the military paperwork that I have). Dad passed away in 1970 and several years later I inherited his guns and the Mauser was not amoung them. I can only assume that he either sold or traded it off some time prior to 1970. We lived in MI but he did spend a year or so in KY shortly after he returned to the states in 1950. I know it's a long shot, okay, a REAL long shot that I could ever find this rifle but what the hell, I figure I'll throw the info out there and see what happens. I was surfing Gunbroker earlier today and actually found K98 S/N 2352 for sale! Go figure, the rifle that was built a mere 7 guns ahead of my Dad's.
