In this video we look at Military Mauser 98 (Gewehr 98, Kar98AZ / Kar98a, Kar98k) accuracy based on figures from German the 1909 and pre-WW2 Schiessvorschrift. We also look at the WW2 era K98k acceptance standard, including the 300m test for the Japanese 98k contract, and a 1901 Hythe test of two Gew98’s.

Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
