Karabiner 98k "Kriegsmodell" - 7.92x57mm Mauser. The "Kriegsmodell" (war model), was a late war simplification to the Kar 98k. This rifle is a "semi-Kriegsmodell" as it has simpler screw retained barrel bands and the bayonet lug and cleaning rod have been omitted, but it still has the bolt disassembly disc in the buttstock. A rifle which incorporate all simplification features is known as a "full-Kriegsmodell", but this are rarer being manufactured by only two factories (bnz and byf/svw).

Waffenfrankonia Würzburg Gewehr 98 .30-06 "Cigarette Sporter" fitted with Böhler Stahl barrel. Cigarette Sporters were so-called due to them costing about a case of cigarettes from an Allied soldier to make. Many Kar 98k rifles would wind up in similar configuration after WWII.
