Is there a website just 7.62X54R.NET for the Kar98k? I love the 762 website for what they have done about the Rifle, and the Rifle Owners. I own one myself :rolleyes: but now I want to do my studies on the German (Nazi) K98k. (btw i have checked on google and i didnt find any. therefore i am asking for help lol) Thanks for the help / viewing.

If you want a good reading not online... I would check out "Military Mausers of the World" It is THE Muaser book.

"Backbone of the Wehrmacht" is also a good source for codes and markings.
