Answer
Greetings

The K98-29 models were built in Czechoslovakia in the mid 1930s for the Persian Army.  I would need to know the serial number to determine the year of manufacture.  Yours has been modified since it was built.  It would appear it had a longer barrel fitted for hunting. Also the stock has been changed.  I would have a gunsmith look at it.  The below link is to gunsmith who might be able to go into more detail.

I hope this helps.

Thank you
