History is a funny thing. Here is a photo of some German snipers dated 25th April, 1945. Germany officially surrendered on May 7th.
When most modern gun collectors look at this image, they focus on the German G43 semi-automatic rifles. Or…are they G41’s? The earlier version? I don’t know as I am not an expert on that type of rifle.
But there is something interesting that most people miss. The 3rd man from the right is 100%, most defiantly, carrying a Russian Mosin Nagant Sniper. Not a German K98.
You take what you can get when you can get it.
Wars rarely, if ever, end cleanly.
