    In today’s Photos Of The Day we are taking a look at a WWII German Mauser K98 sniper rifle. The Mauser K98 became the standard service rifle of the German Army in 1935. Chambered in 7.92×57mm Mauser they seem to have a possible effective range of over 1,000 meters if equipped with a telescopic sight, and about half of that with iron sights.

    Rare, clean, authentic, all matching, WWII German Mauser K98 Sniper rifle. Thanks to CS Arms in Upperville, Virginia for letting me shoot some of their inventory. IG @cinematicarms
