Original Saving Private Ryan German WWII 98k Resin Prop Rifle

Item Description

Original Item: This is a resin (heavy dense rubber or plastic) prop gun manufactured for the film Saving Private Ryan. These were sold in fairly large numbers after the release of the film but in the past 10 years have been difficult to find. When they original came to the market they were sold for $119 each!

This is a full size replica and the casting was good and detailed so many of the original markings such as serial numbers and Waffenamts are still visible.

Interestingly, IMA supplied many of the Machine Guns, Edged Weapons and loads of other equipment for Saving Private Ryan which was released in 1998 and set the bar for the WW2 film genre.

The Karabiner 98 kurz "carbine 98 short", often abbreviated Kar98k or K98k and often incorrectly referred to as a “K98” (which was a Polish Carbine) is a bolt-action rifle chambered for the 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridge that was adopted on 21 June 1935 as the standard service rifle by the German Wehrmacht. It was one of the final developments in the long line of Mauser military rifles. Although supplemented by semi- and fully automatic rifles during World War II, it remained the primary German service rifle until the end of the war in 1945. Millions were captured by the Soviets at the conclusion of World War II and were widely distributed as military aid. The Karabiner 98k therefore continues to appear in conflicts across the world as they are taken out of storage during times of strife.
