    The gew98 was ONE standard lenght of barrel and stock during it's whole issue production ring from 1898 until 1918.

    Very rare for a military rifle to have that as an option-Lee Enfields did, but you only had to make and fit the different length butt stocks for those...

    I have seen 'modified' G98's set into K98 stocks. Perhaps this has influenced your thinking on this matter?
