Mossberg Model 595 TriggerMossberg 935 Gas Piston Assembly
German Model 98/40 Rifle
Budapest ModellGerman Model Rifle

One of the substitute standard rifles adopted by Germany in 1940 was the Model 98/40. Produced in Budapest, Hungary, this rifle was developed from the Hungarian Model 35, a Mann-licher-type turnbolt rifle with protruding box magazine and 2-piece stock. The 98/40 is similar to the Hungarian 35 except that it is adapted to the 8 mm. Mauser cartridge, employs a Mauser-type magazine flush with the stock, has a turned-down bolt handle, and is adapted to a German sling and bayonet.

The Germans adopted this rifle because they needed a large supply of rifles in a hurry. They utilized existing production facilities wherever these were available.

The 98/40 is sturdy and reliable, but its forward-positioned bolt handle makes it inferior to the Mauser 98 for rapid-fire shooting.

Early 98/40 specimens show excellent workmanship and finish. Later specimens of the 98/40 are not as well finished, but they are serviceable.
