The Karabiner 98 kurz (German: "carbine 98 short", often abbreviated Kar98k or K98k and often incorrectly referred to as a K98 (which was a Polish Carbine) is a bolt-action rifle chambered for the 7.9257mm Mauser cartridge that was adopted on 21 June 1935 as the standard service rifle by the German Wehrmacht. It was one of the final developments in the long line of Mauser military rifles. Although supplemented by semi- and fully automatic rifles during World War II, it remained the primary German service rifle until the end of the war in 1945. Millions were captured by the Soviets at the conclusion of World War II and were widely distributed as military aid. The Karabiner 98k therefore continues to appear in conflicts across the world as they are taken out of storage during times of strife.
One of the most iconic bolt action infantry rifles during World War II, the Mauser KAR 98K earned its reputation of being a reliable, accurate, and rugged out on the battlefield.
Today KAR 98 rifles are sought after for their historical value as well as their beauty and craftsmanship.
The Matrix KAR 98K does an exceptional job of recreating this historical rifle for Airsoft and reenactment use. The stained wood stock is beautifully crafted and adds a much desired heft to the overall weight of the rifle. The bolt mechanism is very smooth and has a very solid lock up that has minimal play.

(Write a review) "The service at Evike is impeccable, Thank you so much for the quality of the item and the speed in which it was sent out. I will always choose Evike!!! "Note: This is a review for the new Matrix Kar98k spring model, not the gas shell-ejecting model seen in the other reviews.
This is also NOT the same as the other Matrix/S&T Kar98k, it does NOT take Kar98k mags, instead it takes S&T Springfield mags. Here are the first impressions:
-Decent range and accuracy. With the hop-up optimized it'll hit targets past 150 feet. Works best with .28s or .30s.
-Holds 25 rounds, easy to load.
-Heavy but not as heavy as the real deal. Weighs around 7 pounds plus. This is probably a pro for most people since the original weighs 8-9 pounds.
-Real wood and steel, build quality seems pretty good. Not easy to scratch at all although the finish does seem to have several rough spots around the edges.
-Bolt was stiff at first but after 100 rounds was pretty smooth. As is with most springers.
-Not much upgradeability. I'm not sure about the compatibility even with other S&T parts since it's a new model. If I had to upgrade I would get a 450-500 FPS spring and maybe a tightbore barrel, but otherwise it's already pretty fiedable.
-It'd cost a lot to get a scope mount and an appropriate scope.
-Mags are plastic, flimsy, and $18. On the bright side it shares a mag with the S&T M1903.
Overall, a decent gun that's quite skirmishable in mid-range arenas. Great buy if you're a fan of historical weaponsâ€”if you're looking for a super upgradable sniper rifle this is not the place to look. "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.
- Good FPS for field
- Decent accuracy
- Realistic round capacity (may be a pro or a con)
- It looks amazing
- 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 Read More Reviews Write a Review
