The Standard-Modell Short Rifle (K98) a derivative of the Gewehr 98 or Mauser Model 1898, in violation of the Treaty of Versailles (ending WWI) and manufactured in The Weimar Republic of Germany in 1933-1935. It featured combined features of the Karabiner 98AZ and Gewehr 98 versions. 8 x 57 mm, barrel was only 600 mm (23.6 in)-long, comparable to the barrel of the Karabiner 98AZ. The rifle type had a new iron sight line, with a tangent rear sight graduated from 100 m (109 yd) to 2,000 m (2,187 yd), with 50 m (55 yd) increments. The rear sight element could be modified to match the trajectory of the standard 7.92×57mm Mauser S Patrone spitzer bullet or the heavier s.S. Patrone boat tail spitzer bullet originally designed for aerial combat and long range machine gun use.
