IMPORTANT NOTE FOR OVERSEAS BUYERS - If ordering from overseas, use the PayPal option for payment, there are issues with resolving foreign addresses. Multiple attempts to use your credit card will cause your financial institution to put a hold on funds for the purchase - we DO NOT get these funds, your bank only holds them in anticipation of your order. It's very important you use PayPal instead to prevent issues with payment. Even though I put this disclaimer I still have people contacting me having issues.

IMPORTANT NOTE II - If you are ordering these books and have an existing numbered set, please put a note in the checkout screen with your current book number. We have no way of tracking which books should be numbered to whom, so it is up to the buyer to notify us of which book you have so we can match them up. If you would like to order a numbered set, a limited amount of numbered book sets will be sold separately.

"Karabiner 98k Volume 2: A collectors guide to the development and production of the German K98k service rifle from 1939 - 1944". Originally, this was intended to be 1 book, but due to the immense amount of information available (over 910 pages), the volume was split into 2 books, which are sold together as a set. The K98k rifle was Germany's principle battle rifle from 1935 until 1945. In those 10 years the K98k rifle left it's mark on the history of the world. This volume details the production and improvements to German Model 98 rifles from 1939 - 1944. The book includes detailed production analysis using factory documents whenever possible, including over 200 pages on Mauser Oberndorf alone. Also covered are the rest of the makers of the K98k rifle during WW2, including Sauer, Steyr, Waffenwerke BrĂ¼nn AG, Erma, Mauser Borsigwalde, Gustloff-Werke, and Mauser Borsigwalde. Also covered in detail are reworks and rifles of the SS. Hardcover, 913 pages total, Vol.2a 435 pages, Vol.2b 478 pages.
