    Default G/K43 Wartime Photos-Post Em' Up!

    Thought I'd put my G/K43 wartime photos that I have scrounged up over the years for reference. Sorry if there are any duplicates, what photos do you guys have stashed away? Post away, please!

    Default Round 2 - G/K43 Wartime Photos

    Next batch, some interesting ones here...


    The above photo shows what appears to be one of the mysterious 20 round magazines, any thoughts fellow G/K43 collectors? Can anyone identify the unit or nationality of this group?




    A truck load of POW's and a capture pile. GI's seem to have always had a good eye for souvenirs!


    Close up of this GI's choice, nice selection!


    MP43/1 and a G/K43!




    Note the handguard and barrel of another G/K43 on the far right of this photo.


    Sniper!


    My favorite G/K43 photo, a Luft sniper group!

    Those are Lithuanian uniforms. Probably anti-Soviet guerrillas. Partisan activity went on for some time in the Baltic states. The first photo is the leader of the Lithuanians, Adolfas Ramanauskas-Vanagas. He was tortured and murdered by the Russians after he was finally captured in 1956.

    Found this photo that someone colored in, note the lack of a scope rail.

    Yeah, too bad that site is gone now, I wonder if someone would try to get it back up and running. I was on there yesterday trying to find a picture of a K98 a member was selling along with a G43. I bought the G43 but I can't get to a picture of the receiver of the K98, I have two pictures of it I saved. All I remember is that it was a byf 44.
