    Default G98/40 pictures

    Anyone got period pictures of G98/40's in use?

    Thanks.

    Great pictures, never seen this before either. Soldiers appear older, could be reservist?

    I've seen one photo of SS soldiers with G98/40's on a German 'half track' vehicle, I think it was shown on either this site or on Gunboards....

    Holy cow! TH, you found the grail I've never seen pictures this obvious of the 98/40 in use. These fellows look landsturm to me, clearly.

    Stars, I found that pic in Wenn Alles Bruder Schwegen (sic), the SS pic book and posted it long ago or referenced it. It is from behind, but clearly a 98/40. Eastern Front, W-SS. This is pic stickied.

    Yes TH, that is the one! Thanks! I remembered years ago, 25 or more, pouring through that book. I'm an idiot savant about pictures of weapons, gear, helmets, etc., because that is what I look at and that one stuck in my mind as "wow, that's a 98/40". From the time I was about 15 to present I've scoured God knows how many pics and the ones in this thread are the only ones I've ever seen of German 98/40 use. Thanks so much for posting it!

    I think I may have come across another one and it looks like it may be a white gule:

    *edit* looks like theres two 98/40s in there, nice KT too.



    Anybody have an idea about the armbands theyre wearing?
