German Rifle Question

Okay, I am sure that Heady and Captain Madden know this but I do not. We all know that the Jerries used the Mauser 98K - K for Karabiner - during WW2. Did the use the longer, heavier 98 or was this rifle well past its prime in the 40's?

Re: German Rifle Question

The common German solider onlyused the 98K though you will see last ditch weapons of every type used by the volkstrum...etc. I think they may have retained some of the older rifles in trining but most were sold off to third world countries during that time period.
