Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Karabin wzor 98a (Kb wz.98a) was a Polish bolt-action rifle based on the German Gewehr 98.After regaining independence, the Polish Army was armed with Russian (Mosin), Austrian (mainly Mannlicher M1895) and German (Mauser M1898) rifles. Even French rifles (Berthier and Lebel) appeared along with Blue Army soldiers.As a result, at the end of the Polish-Soviet War in 1921 the Polish army was armed with approximately 24 types of guns and 22 types of rifles, all firing different ammunition. Since such a combination of designs impeded training and logistics, work on one standard type of rifle was carried out starting in 1919. Initially it was assumed that the Lebel would be adopted, but it was quickly rejected as an obsolete design. Later on, proposals for adoption as a standard rifle included the Mannlicher M1895 or Mauser M1912 (produced in Austria for Mexico).show more
