The Mauser DSM34 was a lightweight rifle produced from the mid to late 1930's, originally as a "sporting rifle" since Germany was forbade by allied powers to produce military weapons under the Treaty of Versailles. It was later used to train German forces prior and during WWII because of it's similarity to the Mauser 98K.
