    It's an awesome rifle.

    I've heard it's quite accurate.

    well, the wachbattalion (honor guard) just uses the Kar98k just for parades, etc....i don't think any soldier has shot them in his active service....i'm not sure if the rifles are still working but i guess they aren't...

    Bayonet is missing though.
    Bundeswehr has none, but a honour guard needs bayonets.
    Strangely I've seen the Ehrenzug of the Mürwik naval academy with Kar98 and bayonets on a video.

    Oh no, they are still working! I served 4 years in the WachBtl and believe me those rifles are still shooting perfectly. In those 4 years I got twice the chance to shoot them and they kick like a mule, but hey, after all it´s a caliber for real men!!! I used the bayonet only in the drill team on a few occasions.

    Good to know that we´ve still got a seriously oldschoolish last line of defense in Berlin!

    So honor guard kept the WW2 style of dress up, correct?

    Nope, the uniform is not different from the normal dress uniform of the various service branches.
    Better tailoring I suppose is all.
    The only change was that they replaced US style helmets with M35 style helmets around 2001 or so.
    And their navy uniform screams "pseudo" from many small details to real sailors
