"To be honest, this gun is hardly worth it. the K98 is my favorite gun of all time, and this gun had everything I could have wanted in a WWII weapon. But after I got it as a gift, I realized the error of my desires. I would practice reloading at least 20-25 round per day (for fun) with relative ease on the rifle, but as the weeks went on, the rifle degraded quickly. by the third week of ownership, the rifle wouldn't even eject shells and I had to push them out of the way with my thumb to eject the shells because the little metal piece to eject the shells (within the bolt
) is pot metal and broke after about 150-200 ejections of shells. I got the rifle on 12/25/2014. and it is now UN-USABLE (for field use) by 01/08/2015. It's really sad honestly, this gun feels so great to rack the bolt back and shoot (it really does! regardless of its flaws!), but is nothing more than a novelty due to it's super short life span. and the evike FPS review is correct, it gets about 4-5 shots at 400ish fps, only to drop to 340-320 fps for the following 5-10 shots.

I currently have a TM m14, an ICS G33, and a KJW m1911 and they work like dreams. In no way do I relate these guns to the k98 (due to their efficiency differences), but it's hard to use a gun (when owning guns like these) that greatly varies in fps, and has a hop-up unit that is a bit hard to get used to. But if you're looking for a fun as hell backyard shooter, this is a really good gun to have if you're gentle with it.

"Though it may not be the most functional rifle for a skirmish, this is great for anyone looking for historical accuracy. Be careful, however, not to lose the shells as the cost can add up quickly.

Pros:
- Good FPS for field
- Decent accuracy
- Realistic round capacity (may be a pro or a con)
- It looks amazing

Cons:
- Shells are easily lost during a skirmish
- Shells may get stuck in the chamber, be sure to carry an unjamming rod with you
- It does not perform as well in the cold
- The orange tip may be difficult to remove

"Hello Evike I would like to win this beautiful airsoft gun. I think I should win because I love this rifle. I have alot of respect for this German weapon and love its real big'ol rifle round. I liked seeing this weapon in the movie saving private ryan(The German soldier who killed the U.S soldier with a bayonet in the gunning room and was seen later in the movie). This weapon is so awsome looking in the picture and saw it was (gas powered + shell ejecting = rea wood= :D) I do not really want a bad springer. So I hope I was not late for th give away I saw in the cmments.

"Everything on this is either Wood or Metal, except the Orange Tip (which oops fell off)
One Gas Charge gets a good 20-25 rounds.
Shell Ejecting Feature is very cool.
Spare Bullet Cartridges are fairly inexpensive.
Bolt Disassembles like the real rifle. (Safety off, Pull Bolt Back, Left side Lever releases Bolt)
Pay attention to the way the Black Plastic Piece goes in because it spins (goes on the right side)

Shoots pretty good. Not the most accurate for consistency but the coolness of the Shells spitting out the side makes up for it. I was shooting out my Sliding Door and it is 10 degrees outside so that may be throwing it off a bit as Gas Rifles usually don't like the cold.
