The Karabiner 98 Kurtz or Kar 98 for short, was a bolt action rifle that was standard issue to general German infantry during WWII. It fired the 7.92x57mm Mauser round (sometimes known as 8mm Mauser or .324" cailber) from a 5 round internal magazine, being one of the final developments of the line of Mauser rifles. The rifle was based on WWI Gewehr 98, but made it easier for fast moving infantry to carry and operate. The Kar 98 was known for great reliability and range and was used by the German Army throughout the entire war in all theatres, despite more advanced rifles has been introduced in WWII, many German soldiers still used Kar 98K until the end of the War. The K98 is often regarded as the best bolt-action rifle ever made, its action has been regarded as perhaps the single most influential rifle design ever made, the Germans were still produced them until the end of the War. Because virtually every bolt action following the Mauser's invention had adopted its design, even today, almost all modern bolt action rifles (civil and military) are all followed the Mauser pattern.
