The Kar98k rifle replica is made of polymer and metal. The barrel, slide, sights and sling swivels are made of metal. A stock is made of polymer (wood imitation). This is a gas replica so its muzzle velocity is high.
The manufacturer tried to reproduce the principle of shooting from the firearm counterpart as best as possible. The replica shoots 6mm BBs which are placed in special shells. Shells with BBs are loaded into the chamber identically as in the firearm – either manually in turn or using the so-called “boats”, which are placed just above the chamber, and then all five “rounds” are inserted in one move. Kar98k is a replica of a bolt-action rifle, also here the system has been preserved. After every shot we must reload the rifle by making 4 moves with the lever. After firing a shot and loading the next round – an empty shell pops out in the same way as during real shooting.
This rifle was an element of the equipment of units fighting on many fronts of World War II, that’s why it is currently used by many reenactors of that period. It’s a real treat for all collectors and enthusiasts!
