Will fit m96 Swedish Mauser
Review by No One
Five taps of a hammer on the front tang and it fits with precision on M96 Mauser.
Good Product!
Review by MK
I've been thinking of getting one of these extended magazines for my WWI German 98 for some time. I haven't purchased from Keep Shooting in the past but decided to give them a try after reading some reviews. I' glad I did.
Well Built
Review by Fred W.
Unfortunately, could not fit it on my Turk refurb. It was only about 1.5 mm too big, but after getting it attached, the follower stuck.
But it is vey well made. It'll probably work on my next Mauser project. Nice historical reproduction.
A fine addition
Review by Tank
While not seen a lot, this attach/detach mag will hold enough ammo to let your shoulder hurt on range day. The ONLY problem I had was with a RSO who was unfamiliar with it who howled at me for 15 minutes "pull your mag". not so much.
Authentic
Review by Dylan
When dry cycling I found the function to be lacking. However..under actual fire the mag works perfect. Looks great and only took a small amount of fitting to work on my 98/22 and K98

Mauser Trench Magazine
Review by M Trike
Overall well built mag at a great price compared to other vendors of this same item. The one that I received had the issue of the follower cocking out of level after 8-10 rounds were cycled through. I polished the follower at all contact points and used powdered graphite to lubricate the contacting surfaces of the follower and mag walls. That helped keep the follower stay level as it moved up through the mag. It is still not consistent in performance. I think there is a inherent design flaw of the very long zig-zag spring causing the follower to tilt as it moves upward. I'm going to try using two pistol mag springs side by side to see if that eliminates the tendency of the follower to shift to the direction of the zig-zag spring. An even front and rear spring pressure should make these trench mags reliable.
5 stars to 1 star
Review by Bucky
Mag seemed great until I loaded actual ammo into it. First, tried pushing 5 rounds from stripper clip. What a mess; follower "stove-piped"(assumed a vertical position) and I had to remove mag to get ammo out. Tried loading 15 single rounds by hand pushing on front and back of cartridge; stove-pipe of follower and jammed cartridges. Tried again, same. Removed mag to make sure follower was pointed in right position, it was. Tried yet again with 15 rounds (that is 10 in mag); jam city, stove-pipe of follower and more stuck rounds. Perhaps point of bullet is rubbing on front of magazine or breech of barrel, but I tried to avoid this issue. Shouldn't be that sensitive anyway. Removed and replaced with original Mauser 5 round mag, worked like a champ. These mags seem to work by their reviews, not mine, wish it did, ideas?
Fit K98, not Turk G98
Review by Bucky
Had lots of grief removing bottom mag plate on 1944 refurb Turk G98. Decades old cosmoline. Could not get mag to lock in. Also had trouble getting removed plate to lock back in, but it did. Mag locked into my K98 (Yugo markings) w/o problem. Fine, since I wanted it on K98 anyway! Well made product.
Works with mine kar 98
Review by Brenden
Jusr got it a few minutes ago in the mail and I all ready have it on my kar 98 had to do no Modification at all it just simply snapped in place and I loaded it up with 20 rounds no problem they all fed and ejected just fine when you have all 20 in it Definitely adds a bit of weight to the rifle but over all 5 out of 5
Worthy product
Review by John
Arrived quickly, well constructed, well finished and even more pleasing, an exact fit to my 1915 GEW Mauser. You cannot do better at this price or even twice that which the competing sellers charge. I did not nor will not try this on a K98 as it not designed nor correct for the later Mauser.
Great reproduction!
Review by Michael
Authentically marked and ready for your GEW 98 or k98!
Nice to Mauser
Review by JJ
Let's keep it simple. High quality and fit very well. Price is a very good deal.
1943 German K98 Mauser = Awesome addition !!!!!!!!
Review by David
This fits my 1943 German K98 Mauser great. Installation was easy only adjustment was needed no modification was needed. Had to slightly bend the front of the magazine lip by 1mm then insert front lip first push down and forward and it snapped in place securely. It is all steel construction the box, follower, and spring too. Only draw back is does not hold bolt open when empty but that doesn't bother me. If you have a German Mauser this will fit and highly recommend it.

Strong
Review by Ian
Well built magazine; very strong, welded joints, very nice follower. The body is constructed of 0.037" (0.94mm) steel, and has a hard, matte black paint. The follower spring is plenty long and strong for reliable feeding.
To note: this will fit in a Czech VZ24 but not a Yugo M48. The dimension from the underside of the front lug to the back of the rear lug is 3.799" (96.26mm), a VZ24 has 3.787" (96.18mm), and an M48 has 3.670" (93.21mm) respectively. It fits a VZ24 as-is, but cannot be modified to fit an M48 (I tried). Something else to note is that the magazine body is 1.05" (26.54mm) wide at the front, and 1.12" (28.34mm) at the rear (1.31"/33.25mm with the lug bracket wrapping around the back). The upper body of the magazine will almost definitely need to be modified to fit the rifle perfectly (especially if the wood of the stock is not level with the metal), but shouldn't be too massive a chore.
Overall, a quality piece of equipment that is well worth the money (although being less expensive would only add to the desirability). Gives an interesting look to your Mauser that will sure get comments.
Great for the Gew 98!
Review by Jim
I too tried this in some of my other Mausers with no luck. It was very close on my Turk Model 38, but wouldn't quite fit. It gave me an excuse to buy a Gew 98 this past weekend though. I did have to grind a little bit on the flange that locks the magazine in place on the rifle, but once that was done, it fit great - very solid. Can't wait to get it to the range!
Outstanding
Review by Ryan
One of the most interesting designed mags I have ever seen. Multi platform use and very rigid, the cherry on top of any rifle you can use it in.
Fits my K98 JUST FINE!!!
Review by K98 Kingpin
I don't know what the last reviewer was talking about, this magazine fits my K98 just fine.

It looks great and was easy to install. The spring is strong, the metal finish is perfect, and the stampings look great too.

A++++ would recommend to anyone with a K98!!
Make sure you have a G98
Review by Ricky
Purchased this magazine thinking it would work on a K98K, but it is actually designed to work on a G98. Apparently there has never been a K98K specific trench magazine, only modified versions of this magazine to fit them to each individual K98K.

I have a few K98K's and this magazine does not lock into place on any of them, the pin that locks the magazine in place is off by a few fractions of an inch. I'm sure I could open up the magazine a bit, but I would expect feeding problems as this is not going to be held in the receiver correctly.

This magazine does snap into my Gewehr 98 marked receiver Russian Capture just fine. I was able to also load and cycle 20 rounds of dummy ammo without any problems. I did not try 25 rounds because I had to make up the dummy rounds and didn't really see the point in doing 5 more. Since it feeds all 20 fine, I'm sure it will feed the last five too.

Not sure if I would have bought this if I knew it only worked in the Gewehr 98. I called KS about this and they were great about updating the information for other customers and offered a full refund if I wanted one. Decided to keep this magazine though as it really does look good on my G98. I just wish it was a little cheaper.
