The Ironic Sniper A very rare example of a scoped Mauser K98 that was used by the IDF as sniper rifle. A small amount of these were brought in years ago and haven’t seen any new surplus since. The Israeli’s understood proper cheek weld for scoped rifles as seen on the stock on this Mauser; they carried that type of cheek rest over onto their M14 sniper rifle. That black scope with the silver mounts is aftermarket, but the real Israeli issued scope is that green one. I would have bought one of these but I think I was still in middle school when these were brought into the U.S.
