Mauser K98k

Of the final battles of the first world war in the autumn of 1918 Germany was released as the main loser of the state and its fate was fully in the hands of the victorious allied powers - Great Britain, France, and Italy, Russia and Germany concluded a separate peace is already 3. march 1918 in Brest-Litovsk) - which met at a conference in Versailles, france. The outcome of the conference was the so-called that makes the treaty, which Germany has authorised its time for a small, volunteer, army - the Reichswehr - now numbering 100 thousand members. the Reichswehr had the contract also permitted to only a certain type arms (for example, it was forbidden to the air force or tank army), which, as well as the entire German armaments industry, are subject to the continuous supervision of the inspectors of the allied powers. With the passage of years, however, the attention of the French weapons inspectors has declined, fascist Italy, on the inspection activities were not interested and the United Kingdom the activities of its inspectors even ended. In this situation, the German arms companies, which otherwise threatened to crash, began with the support of the German government to work on the secret development of new weapons. Generally known is the mutually beneficial cooperation of Germany and the Soviet union in the field of aviation and armored techniques at the turn of the 20. and 30. years of the twentieth century, but the development was carried out in the area of small arms. All the work towards the development of new weapons, was in Germany strictly utajována, but since the advent of the Adolf Hitler to power in 1933, the degree of confidentiality declined, until in 1935 it was officially announced the establishment of the "new" German army, based on the braneckém principle - Public - and began the plans for the rearmament of Germany. From that moment, the German fascists to raise the path of the gradual militarization of not only the industry, but also the whole of German society and aggressive policy towards the surrounding countries, especially Czechoslovakia and Poland, so opened the door to the largest and nejstrašnějšímu war in human history - the second world war.

The main armament of the Reichswehru been since 1923, the carabiner Mauser K98b caliber 7.9 mm (hub 8x57JS), on the basis of the pre-war opakovačky Mauser G98. However, it was clear that the weapon of a length of 1250 mm, already lagging behind the requirements, imposed on the basic weapon of the individual in the post-war era. In 1924, therefore, the company Mauser present a new type of "civilian" rifle, called the "Standard Model". The gun again relied on the pre-war rifles G98, from which it differed mainly the main, reduced to 600 mm (G98 had a barrel length 740 mm) and of the distinct elements, on the other hand left the straight the handle end and the bottom of the fixing belt. "Standard model" however, produced only for export, mainly to China. The weapon bore only the normal marking Mauserových civilian weapons - the character of the manufacturer (barrel Mauser) on the upper surface of the sleeve end and the designation "Standard Model" and the year of manufacture on the left side of the receiver. In the years 1929 and 1930 the Reichswehr has carried out comparative tests, "of the standard model" with a snap K98b, however, the soldiers opted for the original K98b, but reduced the main and the side fitting of the carrier belt.
On the basis of the results of these tests, the Mauser in the year 1933 he submitted to the so-called "Gewehr für Deutsche Reichspost", or "rifle for the German říšskou e-mail". Although this was the weapon of a purely military, rather unusual name came from the reason already described above, the secrecy of the development of military weapons. The rifle already carried most of the elements, which later characterised the carbine K98k - barrel length 600 mm, down bent over the end of the crank, tightening the belt, staring,... Rifles "for říšskou mail" were on the left side of the receiver marked soudkovým the hallmark of the Mauser and the year of production. Most of these weapons have been allocated nazi partisan units of the SA and the SS. Due to confidentiality, however, were left on the hlavišti rifle marked by the letters "D.R." (Deutsche Reichsbahn - the German imperial railway) or (D.R.P. (Deutsche Reichspost - the German imperial post office).
With such a refined knowledge of the armament office of the Reichswehru at the beginning of 1934 listed the requirements of the new standard rifle of the German army. Výzbrojnímu office were firms Mauser and J. P. Sauer presented the prototypes of virtually identical weapons (they differed only details the forging of rifle), based on the "postal rifles". Rifle was 21. June 1935 formally taken into the arms of the under the designation "Karabiner 98 kurz" (carbine 98 short), the abbreviation "K98k". About a quarter of a million rifles, however, was made and forwarded to the army even before the official decree on the introduction to the equipment.

Rifle K98k has become the basic infantry weapons of the German Public and since its introduction, up until the year 1945, it was trained every German soldier and for most of them it was, for the entire period of military service, and war, the only weapon. At the time of the beginning of the second world war had Former total of 2 769 533 rifles K98k, total them, then it was produced over 14 million units. The price of one in the year 1939 K98k was a 70 imperial mark.

Next d
Although the first series K98k were delivered even before the official introduction into service, was the new rifles initially lack. The main reason was the lack of capacity of the production plants. Due to the pressure on the fastest possible rearmament of the Wehrmacht the new rifle was because i started to adjust the older rifles G98 and K98b on the standard K98k. These weapons are easily identifiable by the original designation of left on the case conclusion.

The butt stock was initially made from the full of walnut or beech wood, from 1937, of wood laminated. Production of laminated rifle rested in the composition of about 1.5 mm strong beech veneer, their compression of the press and the saturation of the phenolic resin (similar to the technology have been in the Soviet union during the war produced as a shell hulls and wings of many of the fighters). Laminated butt stock had a much higher strength and durability than a full wood, but its machining has been substantially more difficult. A small series of rifles K98k was tentatively zapažbena bands of plastic. Tests have shown that the plastic has satisfactory mechanical properties, but the mass of these weapons didn't exist yet, mainly because in the cold weather with the chosen plastic acted as the metal and without gloves to him přimrzaly fingers. Up to now have been only four specimens rifles K98k with a plastic stock (of one's own and the Military history institute of the Czech armed forces).

From the beginning of the year 1943 was the construction of weapons (not only K98k) zjednodušována with regard to what the lowest cost and highest masovost production. Initially, the individual parts of K98k rifles produced by milling, the surface of the parts was every day and then černěn. Machining is, however, costly and time consuming technology, therefore, has been to many parts of the gradually překonstruováno so, in order to their production, it was possible to use much cheaper and more productive stamping.
Further, it was changed (i.e. simplified) the shape of some part, so as to reduce the number of manufacturing operations. The K98k rifle was gradually changed the shape of the odfukovacích holes in the end of the oval to circular, has been omitted from the guide rib end and the disk rozborku conclusion replaced the plain hole in the botce butts...
The next in the direction of streamlining the production of weapons has been the reduction of manufacturing operations, of which the omission or simplification should not affect the functionality of the weapon. In the course of the war have been getting more and more accurately machined only the functional area of each part.

Simply, we can design and technological adaptation split into individual years. In 1938 it was walnut wood rifle replaced bukovou veneer (see above). In 1939 he was introduced to the tunnel cover to the front sight (it was made of spring-like sheet metal, which fit into the slots in the carrier flies - it was not a simplification, rather the contrary) and a metal cap the barrel has been replaced by a rubber (but it had distinct advantages, because it has not been necessary before shooting, taking down, and it was possible to pierce; to each of the arms being supplied to the four caps). In 1940, there have been first compensation machined part per part of the pressed - lug rifle, which also got the higher the walls, encircling hlaviště rifle (lug actually formed a sort of cup), which prevented the cleavage of the laminated butts. In 1941 no alteration to the design of the K98k not, but from 1942 begins the wave of simplification of the weapons - is simplified shape of the top of the barrel room lamp (no longer has the typical shape of the letter H, but still it is produced by milling) and simplified was also the branding of the visor. A further simplification was introduced in the year 1943 - the top of the barrel sleeve begins to be manufactured to the sealing of the pressed sheet metal, pressed it starts and lučík the trigger and the bottom of the cartridge box.
To much pronikavějším simplification occurred in 1944 - instead of blackening the parts are starting to use phosphating (the color of the phosphate varies according to the current composition of the baths on the individual suppliers), are left out of the final fine machining operations on non-functional surfaces (surface bears distinct traces of machining), more and more parts are produced by pressing (the bottom of the barrel clamp, feeder hubs,...) cease to use the insurance the screws of the bottom of the cartridge box, is simplified by the looks, now cejchované in the range of only 100 to 400 metres, and mainly K98k is produced from the good parts zmetkových the main for the machine gun MG 34.

At the end of 1944 took the need for simplification of the extent that it was decided to manufacture a war model rifle (Kriegsmodell K98k/a), which is roughly processed and a simplified variant of the K98k. For example, he completely dropped the interception., was launched vytěrák, simple staring was hardcoded připájeno on the barrel (before charge-mail the chamber of commerce), pressed the barrel room lamp were to the barrel of fastened screws, missing the bed for rozborku conclusion and závěrnici was launched the guide rib. Outside of that, towards the end of the war came to the troops and weapons without any surface treatment of the butts.

Generally it can be said that after a year of 1942 was the quality of all German arms of the variable due to fluctuating quality of the material, disrupting the production of allied bombing, shortage of raw materials, lack of qualified workers, and last but not least, the "lack of work discipline" foreign workers, whether in the occupied countries, or totally deployed in Germany, or the prisoners of the concentration camps.

After the war
A large number of K98k rifles remained in service even after the second world war, just changed the owner. Poválečnými the user happened to Czechoslovakia, China, Denmark, France, Israel, Yugoslavia, east GERMANY, Norway and GERMANY.
The service of the K98k in Czechoslovakia dedicated to the last paragraph of the article.
Items purchased from China were classified into the army and some of them are the early fifties to get to the battlefield of the Korean peninsula.
The Danish K98k were included in the armament of the home guard, but before that have undergone overhaul in the armory Schultz & Larsen in Otterupu, where the arms got a new barrel, komorované for the charge 6,5x55SE and logically as the new visor. Due to the greater thickness of the walls of the new mainly was the total weight of such modified weapons by about half a kilo higher than the standard K98k with laminated stock.
The israeli K98k, purchased mostly in Czechoslovakia, have done an excellent job even in the year 1956 when the so-called Sinai war. At the turn of the 50. and 60. the years have been přerážovány on the charge 7,62x51 NATO and a small number of them served in the israeli militia still in the 80's. years.
The Norwegian K98k were, after the introduction of the american autoloading rifle M1 Garand as standard weapons, in the royal armory in Kongsbergu přerážovány on the charge 30-06 Springfield and also passed the Norwegian militia.
In the Federal republic of Germany were rifles K98k short period of time used by units of the border police. These weapons were from the post-war production at the plant Mauser in Oberndorf.

Variants of the K98k
From the basic model K98k was in 1941, derived from the sniper rifle. Were characterised by mounting the optical telescopic sight ZF41 (abbreviation ZF means Zielenfernrohr) with a 1.5-multiplier magnification. Attractions, distinguishing this model from other odstřelovaček, was the optic mount on the dovetail, bonded on the left side of the base of the visor. This has permitted the low mounting of optics, which, moreover, do not hamper in the charging of the strip; the downside, however, was the small viewing angle of the optics.
A smaller amount of odstřelovaček K98k was fitted with optical telescopic sight ZF4 4-multiplier breast, which was originally designed for a sniper version of the self-loading rifles G43. Mounting the sight ZF4 was attached to the left side of the receiver. Because of the optics had to be changed the shape of the wings of the fuse, so it was possible to move below the zone of optics.
According to some sources, he was on the K98k is to be mounted and telescopic sight ZF42 with 5-multiplier magnification.

The second variant of the K98k was a rifle with a grenade launcher, introduced in 1942. On the barrel of such a weapon was mounted device for batting puškových grenades. In any pedestrian cooperative Public was one soldier equipped with a rifle with a grenade launcher and a supply of the appropriate ammunition.
Grenade launcher has a caliber of 30 mm, the guide portion of the bore is provided with eight grooves and its total weight is 0.78 kg. A grenade launcher could spiraling various types of cluster i protipancéřových (cumulative) of the shells up to a distance of 250 metres.
For the grenade launcher aiming to serve the special sights, mounted on the left side of the gun under the charge-mail the chamber of commerce.

Rifle Mauser K98k is a refresher of the weapon with the ball odsuvným conclusion. Bullets are stored in a double-breasted, solid cartridge mailbox, located before the lučíkem the trigger. Box is filled from the top using the charge of the tape.

The main parts of the rifle are: the Barrel with mířidly, case conclusion, conclusion, the charge box and the butt.

Barrel length 600 mm is provided with four pravotočivými grooves with a constant pitch of 240 mm. The rear part of the bore mainly passes in the charge-mail the chamber.
At the rear of the barrel is připájena the base of the visor; in the front part of the barrel is připájena the base of the front sight. The barrel has in the back of the thread, which is zašroubována into the receiver.

Case conclusion brings together all the essential parts of the weapons in a single unit. In the front part of the receiver, in the edison case, is the thread in which it is zašroubována the barrel; in the remaining length of the housing is vývrt, in which the moving conclusion. In the side walls of the bore are vyfrézovány longitudinal grooves which, when the longitudinal movement of the end result the locking barbs and thus the conclusion. The rear part of the receiver is the top closed and form a so-called bridge of housing; in front of the bridge are vyfrézovány cutouts for the deployment of charging of the tape.
On the left side of the rear part of the receiver is using a screw fastened in the wheel bracket to the conclusion. The protrusion of the bracket end extends into the side grooves in a housing formed by a rear stop, a conclusion and at the same time prevents its inadvertent removal.

The conclusion consists of závěrnice, extractors, ring extractors, úderníku, drums, springs, úderníkové nut, fasteners, pin fasteners with a spring and a fuse.
In závěrnici are vyfrézovány three locking barbs (two front and one rear) that fit into the respective recess in the housing, the end; of the závěrnice also extends down the angled handle end.In front of the závěrnice there is a bed bottom of the cartridge, the middle of the bed stands out zápalník úderníku. On the right side of the závěrnice is a rotary extractor.
On úderníku is navlečena drums spring and at its rear end is a bayonet joint deployed úderníková matrix.
Úderníková matrix has at the bottom of the bar, whose front end is zkosen. This chamfer to its angle corresponds to the screw surface in the viewport závěrnice; during the rotation of the závěrnice left is úderníková matrix odtlačována backward and that is by a percussion spring. In the lower section of the bar úderníkové matrix are two-jointed, which is used to capture jointed stimulus lever.
The closure, which is sešroubována is závěrnicí, connects the individual parts of the conclusion. In the enclosure is stored in the fuse and pin caps with spring. Pin ensures correct positioning of the caps against the závěrnici and also prevents rotation of the odemčeného conclusion.
Křidélková fuse is your pin stored in the enclosure and has three positions - left, triggered by, up to secure and in the position of the wings of the fuse on the right is ensured and in addition blocked the movement of a conclusion.
In case the end is placed and the stimulus system, which consists of the trigger with the pin, springs stimulus and the stimulus of the lever with the clevis pin. A spring pushes the spoušťovou the lever up to where your cog captures úderníkovou matrix. Press the trigger to cut the rear part of the stimulus lever, calk coming out of the shot and úderníková of the matrix is released. After releasing the pressure on the trigger spoušťová lever returns to the original position.

Charge box is the two screws from the bottom screwed to the sleeve end. The receptacle is formed by the body of the mailbox, which form one whole with the lučíkem the trigger, on the day of the feeding of the spring and the feeder. The bottom of the mailbox is attached to the body of the using odpruženého of the pin. In the bottom of the clipboard is inserted a folded flat spring, which pushes up the feeder hubs. The hubs are in the mailbox stored šachovnicově in two rows.

The butt stock and nadpažbí are made from full walnut or, more often, from laminated beech veneer; exceptional was the butt stock made from a different kind of full of wood. Case the end is to the barrel by means of using two interim screws, which at the same time, connecting the case with the charge-mail box. Before casing, the conclusion is in the barrel throughout its length stored barrel to the barrel secured by two hlavňových collars; from the front of the barrel sleeve protrudes forward collection.. Recoil of the shot is on the stock carried by the čtyřhranného čepového beds, placed under the charge-mail the chamber of commerce.
In hlavišti rifle is a hole for provlečení of the carrier belt and behind it there is a bed for rozborku conclusion. The rear part of the hlaviště rifle is damage-protected by a steel botkou.

Treatment with a rifle K98k:
The left hand to select a weapon under the charge-mail box. The right hand to select the handle of the conclusion pootočíme her left up and zatáhneme conclusion to the rear. The right to select the charging belt with the cartridges and we will see him in the slot in the bridge of the receiver. Then podepřeme four fingers of the right hand bottom of the cartridge box bottom, the thumb put on the highest charge and the pressure of the thumb vtlačíme the hub to the clipboard. The right hand to select the handle of the conclusion with the conclusion ahead of time, to thereby insert the highest charge into the chamber. After you finish off the end into the front position and turn the crank to the right. The charging belt fall off when moving conclusion forward.
After the shot again nabijeme the gun by turning the handles to the left up, by downloading the end backwards to the stop, thereby from the chamber of the one takes and we throw away the empty nábojnici. Then shift the conclusion ahead of time to stop and uzamkneme by turning the handles to the right. The gun is ready for the next shot.

The total was produced about 14 million rifles K98k. The last of the series of rifles K98k was made in Germany between August 1945 and June 1946 for the needs of the French army. Production of the K98k for the need of the Czechoslovak army after the war took place in Brno armory.

Designation of rifles K98k consisted of several elements: the type designation, serial number, indication of manufacturer, year of production, the trial of the brand and the acceptance of the brand.

Indication of the type located on the left side of the receiver and should be in the form "aMod. 98" (without the přídomku "to"). Before the year 1936 were as follows marked only the guns, manufactured in Mauserově parent plant in Oberndorf. This marking was carried out by normal in block letters, with weapons produced by firms Sauer and Erma then švabachem.
Some rifles K98k, modified from the original G98 bear in the same place the original designation of the "Gew. 98". Most of these weapons were used, the nazi party organization of the SS.

The serial number was located on the left side of the sleeve of the receiver, on the lower side of the crank end and the barrel. The serial number initially consisted of three digits, the later of four digits and jednopísmenného sufixu. In some parts of the production number is repeated in abbreviated form.

Manufacturer code first consisted of a large tiskacího the letter "S" and after the slash followed by two to three number, identifying a manufacturer - for example, the Mauser-Werke in Oberndorf had a code "S/42".
In 1938 it was deleted from the code letter "S" with a slash and the manufacturer was identified only by a numerical code, which has been preserved.
In 1940 led to the introduction of a completely new system the code designation of the manufacturer, which consisted of two to three small printing of the letters - for example, the Mauser-Werke in Oberndorf had the code "byf".
An exception to this marking scheme has been the company's products Berlin-Suhler-Waffen-und Fahrzeugwerke of Suhlu, which were up to the year 1939 marked by stylized letters "BSW," or an abbreviation of the company name.

Indicate the year of production with the passage of time also changed. The first two years of production were rifles K98k referred to jednopísmenným code - manufactured weapons in 1934 carried the code "K", in 1935, then the code "G". Code of the year followed immediately by the designation of the manufacturer, however, sometimes it was from him, separated by a slash, exceptionally dot. The letter was mostly a large printed letters, however, sometimes also a small printed letters. Example: a rifle made in the Mauser-Werke in Oberndorf in 1934 carried the designation "S/42K", rifle made by J. P. Sauer in Suhlu in 1935 carried the designation "S/147/G", a weapon made in the Erfurter Maschinenfabrik in the year 1935 was marked with the "S/27.g".
From the year 1936 was the year of manufacture of the weapon marked a whole number of the year, which was located in the rear part of the top surface of the sleeve of the receiver.
From the end of the year 1940 was the year of manufacture marked only indicating the last two digits of the year of production. In 1940, however, in this way were marked only the guns, manufactured in the austrian Steyru, the other manufacturers on this way they switched up from the beginning of the year 1941. The exception from this system were arms, made a new Zbrojovkou, which is now called Waffenwerke Brünn And.-G. Her arms were up to the end of the year 1944 marked the entire year of production.

Outside of marking the manufacturer is to the right at a housing end existed also a military acceptance mark. In any manufacturing plant operated by a group of officers Waffenamtu (výzbrojního office), which was responsible for the readmission of weapons for the army. The commanding officer of each group had allocated a set of stamping dies verification marks (Abnehmestempel) with the assigned number. Stamping dies, of course, was more, but all members of the group have been using the same number. After the acceptance inspection has been on the gun marked vyražením eagle and the assigned number of the group, before which sometimes preceded by the abbreviation "WaA". It is interesting that the number of the group was not linked to the production plant, but on the person of the commanding officer of the group - if one was to be translated into the other race, the numbers went with it. The commander, coming to a relaxed place, with them, brought their own number, although the group otherwise has not changed.

Very often it is possible to individual components of K98k rifles (and other weapons) to find a few codes to manufacturers or groups Waffenamtu, different from the designation on the edison of the receiver. These components were made by different sub-contractors and for the final supplier of the weapons were only assembled.

K98k in Czechoslovakia
The first rifles K98k on the territory of the former Czechoslovakia emerged in the second half of the 30. years for the well known tragic circumstances - find themselves in the hands of terrorists from the sudetenland paramilitary organization of the Freikorps. Members of the Freikorpsu, willingly zásobovaní and ideologically podněcovaní from nazi Germany, had waged a terrorist campaign in the Czech border area and the main objectives of their insidious attacks were primarily symbols of the czechoslovak statehood - soldiers, gendarmes, members of the Financial guard and the staff of the state administration.
The second wave of the rifles K98k on our territory, "came" in the circumstances even tragičtějších - along with the occupation forces of the Wehrmacht in 1939, we settled for the next six years.

In the course of the war in the German Wehrmacht constantly increased the need for (and consumption) of all kinds of weapons. In early 1942 was discontinued the production of rifles K98k in erfurtském race Erma, which fully switched to the production of suddenly appeared with his fellow MP-40, and it was necessary to quickly find a new production capacity. These were found in the former pobočném race brno ammunition company in the Povážské Bystrica in Slovakia, which should be from the pre-war period of experience with the production of the czechoslovak army rifles vz.24. The adoption of the production took place relatively quickly, and even in 1942 it was made in 95 thousand rifles K98k. The total was Povážské Bystrica produced 942 thousand of these weapons.
In 1943 started nabíhat production rifles K98k in the brno factory ammunition company, as a replacement for the completion of the production in the Berlin-Lübecker Maschinenfabrik, which has since focused on the manufacture of samonabíjecích rifles G43. In the first year of production, 1943, the brno race left the 220 thousand rifles K98k and the end of the war a total of 1.03 million weapons.

After the second world war on our territory remained extensive "legacy" after the German galaxy's invaders, which contained a considerable number of rifles K98k. Due to the lack of other weapons and the need for a unified response to the renewed army, were rifles K98k classified into the arms of the Czechoslovak army under the designation vz.98N. Other as follows listed by the German arms were, for example, assault rifles StG44, guns MG34 or pistols P38. In addition, it was undetected in the amount of kořistních rifles shipped from the Soviet union. These guns were in our army called "stalingradskými rifles" because they allegedly were captured during the stalingradské of the battle.
However, what is more important, the production of rifles vz.98N to ms. army in brno Armory was even a few years after the end of the war. In the arsenal of ms. army rifles vz.98N lasted until the beginning of the 50. years, when they were gradually replaced by the machine guns vz.23/24/25/26 and samonabíjecími rifles vz.52.
Part of the kořistních weapons was in 1948 sold to Israel, the rest of the vz.98N were after retirement from the army sold abroad..

I attach photos of my shock absorbers on the kar98, I found that there were two kinds. One, how is the fotu is a helix around the ( very vzacnejši type ) and then, without a helix. Everything is original, only the loop is done the new. Unfortunately, it is kopaný but the damage on it is I would rather be evaluated as from an explosion, because of the similar has also a rifle, with which he was found, and it is obviously from the up of fragments..

Just for the complete rifle which is the photographing was made in the year 1937 in Oberndorf ( code S/42 )..

According to photos goes on the shock absorber called the HUB L25 (Arado system), subsonická ammunition, of course, existed, and, moreover, is not a prerequisite for the use of the silencer. If it is not used subsonická ammo is silenced muted just the noise of the shot (i.e. the expansion of the gases behind the shot) but it is not (but the silencer is never) attenuated sonický bang flying missiles. Shock absorber in the case of using normal ammo will remove the sound of the shot which is to identify the location of the shooter to the most important and private sonický bang will remain, but the latter is much more difficult to be localized.
For clarity, how this thing looked inside, I attach a photo. The type of shock (here it should be L 25) was imprinted on edison, underpinning it to the barrel, similar was done for a variety of other weapons including kořistních, signs then, of course, vary.

To rozborce conclusion.
The conclusion of the day and vyjmeš of the receiver. Of závěrnice vyšroubuješ closure with úderníkem with předepnutou the percussion spring. Then zápalník úderníku zasadíš in addition to beds in the barrel, stlačíš of the closure down against the pressure of the percussion spring, pootočíš úderníkovou matrix by 90° and sundáš her. Then just place ("the pressure on the spring and úderník with pužinou those out before hand. Sborka in the reverse order..
