    Question On Gew98 Cleaning Rods

    Hi Guys,
    I have been recently looking around for a cleaning rod to complete my 1916 Mauser made Gew98. I was offered this cleaning rod which is in superb condition however I have never seen one with the knurled tip. Is this correct for my rifle or is it for an earlier model?
    Best Regards,
    Sam.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    I think it might be for an Argentineicon Mauser.

    see page 2 of this SRF link. I show an Argentine rod pic. and its mark on the end -an anchor. Also a Swedishicon rod ( page 1) with crown mark on the end; both of which that are in found on some Turked Gew 98s:

    Turkish cleaning rods repost - Page 2 - Surplus Rifle Forum - www.surplusrifleforum.org

    I believe yours to be an anchor marked rod form an Argentine Mauser. Not a true Gew 98 rod. Close but incorrect. My SRF post shows a matching GEWicon 98 and a close up photo of the rod head: see Matching GEW 98 photo heavy - Surplus Rifle Forum - www.surplusrifleforum.org

    Libertytreecollectors has one a wee bit closer but they are off a Brazilianicon Mauser hence a B and no serial number.
