SN shows date of production to be February of 1945. knowing that, it shouldin't even be a contest,the k98 has a little more accuracy but the m1 must be far superior to a k98 because its semi automatic whats your thoughts? And also everybody knows that the best most accurate and reliable semi-automatic rifle is the M1 Garand. A good contest would be M1 Garand vs a Karabiener 43 (we already know the winner ) or a K98 vs a Enfield or Nagant or Springfield.

We do not know when these rifles will be shipped back, but they have been approved…” Johnson said in a post to that group. While there is no report on the condition of these specific rifles, the return of any M1 Garand to the U. I can tell you from personal experience the carbine is pretty wimpy when it comes to recoil. I was flipping through a weapons magazine yesterday and one page had an m1 garand and k98 cartriges side by side and the m1 round (30-06) was heavier,taller,wider and looked like it would pack a bigger punch.. but personally Id pick a semi auto over a little less accuracy.

I can see the k98 being useless in modern warfare but the army and the marines use the m1 garand in some cases still today heres a pic...

Everybody knows that the best, most accurate, and most reliable bolt-action rifle is the Mauser Karabiener '98, no doubt.
