The Germans used several bolt action .22 rifles made up to resemble the K.98k military rifle. They were used by the Hitler Youth and other party organizations as trainers. They are desireable collector items as well as quite practical .22 rifles.

There were also sub-caliber adapters for the standard rifle; these were probably used for indoor rifle practice in inclement weather. They are quite rare and valuable.
