  • The Gewehr 98 was a bolt-action rifle which was the standard German infantry weapon from 1898 to 1935 when it was replaced by the Kar98k, a shorter karibiner (carbine) version of the G98. The G98 held an integral, flush mounted 5 round magazine, that could be reloaded using stripper clips or individually by hand. The '98 bolt design is safe, sturdy and reliable, and has been copied worldwide by many firearm makers.
