Surplus Rifles Pt.4 K98 German Mauser Review

mauser 8mm K98


I started writing a series of articles on surplus rifles. We have reviewed the Russian M91 Mosin Nagant, the British 303 Enfield and the venerable M1 Garand. Today we will look at an Axis rifle, the 8mm German Mauser K98. A lot of people agree that the K98 was the rifle by which all other rifles were judged back in the day. The Mauser action being arguably the most successful bolt action ever built. Even today it’s world known for strength and accuracy. It’s been copied time and time again, maybe the best compliment it could get.
