Hi all,

I'm looking for some recommendations on a good collectors book covering the Gew 98 and its development, production, and use. Are there any good books out there that covers the rifle in detail?

Thanks!

Thanks for the recommendations! Now to see if I can find a copy that isn’t insanely expensive...

Really wish more of these collector’s books were available as ebooks, but it is what it is.

I made this thread, pretty good inexpensive book with basic information on German Imperial rifles. The pictures alone for $25 is worth it.

Awesome thread, thanks for the link! Funny to hear from the person who gave me a reason to start diving more into the Gew 98’s history haha

Yep $140 new HC at Mowbray is best bet .
Used it's $175-225:cry:
The best of the best books worth every penny. Or go on line and print out everything you can find on Gew 98s and you got a pile of papers you can put in a binder at about 50 cents per page in ink unless you can download at work. Do you work at a University where it can be recorded as research????:giggle:
What takes hours at home will print out in 60 seconds;)😇😬

The Storz' book on Gew. 98 should be a must for you, if you're interested in
  • early Gew. 98 variants and details
  • details about Gew. 98 stock changes 1914-1918
  • details about Gew. 98 stamps, e.g. the 'RC' stamp, or the 'Sterngewehr'

From my point of view, it's a must-have to evaluate the more expensive Gew.98 variants, or to check an all-matching Gew.98 for originality.

Thanks for the recommendations, everyone! Might just go ahead and pick up the Storz book from Mowbray. The price stings, but the books are a great resource to have.

Yes it is expensive but if the book goes out of print it will skyrocket
