    This is a German K98 rifle trigger section with the empty magazine which has slightly bent looks like impact damage. The part is deactivated by condition obviously plain to see just a part with no moving parts. The rifle part is in nice condition for a relic rusty but it has been very nicely cleaned and is in very solid condition and a nice one for the collection perfect for display. The trigger was recovered with other items from a small pit of buried German equipment from the forest outside of the town of Wiltz on the Belgium-Luxembourg border the area was attacked and captured by the German 5th Parachute Division on 16-18th December 1944 during the German offensive in the Ardennes Forest the battle of the bulge in the winter of 1944-1945. A very nice and unusual relic from this famous battle and Hitler's last big offensive of the war.

    German 5th Parachute Division was a fallschirmjager (paratroop) division in the German Luftwaffe it was formed in France in early 1944, commanded by Gustav Wilke and was the last division to receive near full fallschirmjäger training.
