Note the rear side edge contour of the rear base to accommodate the cocking of the 98 rifle's bolt. German word for Model Number is Modellnummer (M). M 98 is hence a designation to the Model 98 rifle. Also German word for rifle is Gewehr, hence Gew98. Bottom of rear base stamped with what appears as capital G.
