Buy Gewehr 43 Online
Again, excellent condition, with a surprisingly smooth trigger for a semi-auto, with crisp let-off. No buggered screws, original military sights appear to be in excellent condition.
Here’s a bit of history: Germany’s quest for a semi-automatic infantry rifle resulted in two designs – the G41(M) and G41(W), from Mauser and Walther arms respectively. The Mauser design proved unreliable in combat when introduced in 1941. The Walther design fared better in combat but still suffered from reliability problems.
In 1943 Walther introduced a new modified gas system with aspects of the G41(W) providing greatly improved performance. It was accepted and entered into service as the Gewehr 43, renamed Karabiner 43 in 1944, with production amounting to just over 400,000. The Gewehr 43/Karabiner 43 joined the ranks of the SVT-40 and M1 Garand as general issue semi-automatic rifles during the war.
