A WW1 Model Mauser 88 & Bayonet With Turkish TC Asfa Ankara MarkingsSeveral thousands of Gewehr 88's were given to Turkey by their German allies from army stock, for combat use during WWI at such palces as Gallipoli and their other numerous combat regions against the comonwealth forces and their allies.

A German WW1 Trench Warfare German Egg Grenade With Pull.In cast iron. This is an excellent example of the German "Egg" grenade introduced early in 1917 as a lightweight more portable longer range alternative to the Kugel and Stick grenades. Development started in late 1916 which lead to the introduction of the cast iron "Egg" grenade, Mle.1917. It was loaded with black powder, or other explosive fillers. The average soldier could be expected to reach distances of over 40 meters, which meant the Eierhandgranate could be used in an offensive role as well as defensive.
This is the later model with the central band, the body is in superb condition with clear markings on the base Inert and safe but not suitable to export

A Very Good Gew 98 1905 Pattern German Bayonet Of WW1With traditional 'butcher' blade, date stamped 1915. The Seitengewehr 98/05 was introduced into the the Prussian army in late 1905, as a replacement for the 98/02 for engineers and pioneer troops, as the 98/02 was deemed to long and heavy for it's intended purpose. Initial production was in two versions, the first plain backed, and the second with 29 double teeth. The scabbard was leather with steel throat and chape mounts. The bayonet as typical of German blades did not have more than a vestigial muzzle ring, relying on the length of the hilt mounting to fix the blade to its rifle. The plain back version was identified as the S98/05 or S98/05 o.S. (ohne Säge - without saw) and the saw back as the S98/05 S or m.S. (mit Säge - with saw).
