Regarded as one of the best bolt gun actions ever made, the Mauser Kar98 is the benchmark in which most are compared to. The Karabiner 98 Kurz (Carbine 98 Short) or Kar 98K is a shortened variant of the Gewehr 98, the Kar 98K was the primary issue infantry service rifle of the German army from 1935 to the end of The Second World War in 1945. The rifle saw action in every theater of war involving German forces. While it was outclassed by semi-automatic rifles fielded by US troops, the Kar 98k was a formidable weapon despite its rate of fire disadvantage. The Kar 98k demonstrated outstanding reliability and accuracy throughout the war; it was not uncommon for soldiers to be able to make effective shots out to 500 meters with iron sights and up to 1000 meters by skilled snipers using telescopic sights. The reputation and success of the rifle led to the Kar 98K finding its way into the hands of infantry of many opposing nations as captured or scavenged weapons. Today the Mauser Kar 98K is a highly sought after historical weapon by collectors and firearm enthusiasts alike.
The S&T Mauser Kar 98K is a beautiful replica of the historical German infantry battle rifle. The Kar 98K features an imitation wood stock with aluminum alloy barrel, receiver, and action. Powering the rifle is an easy to use and convenient spring piston system to allow the rifle to be much more economical to field. The bolt is easy to cycle and the rifle boasts solid out of the box power and performance.Length:

"this gun is fantastic!
it's as accurate as you're gonna need it to be, probably my only airsoft gun where adjusting the rear sight actually matters
only problem i've had is that it seems like the most common k98 rail won't fit on this? i'm not sure, it's hard to say
you can find the same exact model of rail on amazon, ebay, even here on evike, yet it seems that there's no tutorials on how to install it, or even a picture of one installed on a k98 as far as i can tell
to get back on topic though, fantastic gun, built well, works well, and not too pricey either
"I received this rifle about a month ago. I am a huge fan of all things WW2 and this offerings fills a huge hole in the WW2 airsoft community. As a springer that doesnt use cartridges it is infinitly more skirmishable than the previous KAR 98s.
The faux wood stock is a pitty but for plastic is well done and solid. The gun shot hard an accurately and the hop up was effective up to .28 gram BBs. I am easily able to hit the neighbors plastic recycle bin 160 feet away aiming right at it. It hits hard enough thatit provides a satisfyingly loud thwack.
The magazine is well done and when clicked into place looks correct from a replica point of view. The owners manual does not point out that when the magazine is empty the bolt locks back but that was pointed out in other reviews. Not knowing it caused some alarm early on in my ownership experience. Loading and unloading the magazine is far easier than the thin magazine andtrap door in S & Ts M1903 Springfield which I also own.
I did take 4 days inletting an actual Kar 98 stock and handguard and though pencil lead thin in places it works well. My hope is S & T will offer a real wood version.
I heartily commend S & T for providing us WW2 fans with models we have been denied for far too long and have to say this is 5 for 5 on all levels. I love this rifle. Looks great, feela great and shoots straight and hard.
"An update on the short range on my unit. Fiddled with the hopup bucking, and all of a sudden the effective range jumped to at least 150 feet, likely longer. It appears as if the BBs were not getting the proper backspin with the bucking as having shipped out of the factory, and now they are because of the little adjustment. I am now shooting way over the 100-foot target at the maximum hop.
