Die Schußwaffen 98 (Kar. 98k, b, a, Gew. 98) – The Firearm 98 (Kar. 98k, b, a, Gew. 98). Schmitt published some very fine private purchase manuals for the Soldiers. They were expected to buy these manuals with their own money, as these were not military issued. This is 1940 dated manual has 27 pages of basic instruction for the disassembly and cleaning of the Mauser 98 series of rifles, including several
illustrations detailing bolt disassembly using the stock disk, and a nice fold-out picture in the back which names the parts of the weapon. The fold-out picture is the same picture as the DV 103/2 manual below, but this is in black and white instead of color. It also has a chart showing how to identify the different bullets and cartridges, headstamps, primer sealant color, weights of the bullets, and muzzle velocities. Also explains the use of the 5.6 mm cleaning kit and proper cleaning of the 5.6 caliber conversion. This manual does not contain sight pictures and how to shoot the rifle. The Denckler General Shooting Instruction manual above is better for that.
