Mauser K98 Russian Capture – 8mm Mauser-GRADE A
These original rifles are in demand all over the world and these are now impossible to find, quantities are extremely
limited. The Karabiner 98k was derived from earlier rifles, namely the Mauser Standardmodell and the Karabiner 98b, which in turn had both been developed from the Gewehr 98. Since the Karabiner 98k rifle was shorter than the earlier Karabiner 98b (the 98b was a carbine in name only, a version of Gewehr 98 long rifle with upgraded sights), it was given the designation Karabiner 98 Kurz, meaning “Carbine 98 Short”. These examples were captured on the Eastern Front of WWII by defending Russian forces as they pushed the Nazi troops back to Berlin.
