Very interesting topic and great photos.
Since K98k rifles were numbered on the underside of the stock between the trigger guard and butt plate, it makes more sense to have that part of the rifle readily visible to the user who is trying to find their assigned weapon, and in a rack that would accommodate this arrangement.

Nice photo from Jopaerya in his 6 December 2016 post showing two M1891/30 Mosin-Nagant rifles in the rack next to the K98k's.
