At one point in time, the Mauser 1898 was THE rifle for anyone to own. It was the result of decades of design and refinement of rifle actions for various militaries around the world. Mauser (a German company) licensed many countries to produce their designs for that country's military, and the Zastava factory was originally one of the Yugoslavian state arsenals.

The Remington 798 is, as stated above, a commercial Mauser 98. They were made by Zastava in the former Yugoslavia (partitioned into Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia after a civil war). Remington took over importing Zastava firearms when Charles Daly (Kassnar) went under, but quit importing them when the Yugoslavian civil war broke out in the 1990s. Zastave firearms are currently imported by Century Arms and other distributors.
