Here we have a German Walther Model G-43 Rifle (8mm Mauser). This neat old rifle is WW II Capture rifle that was brought back by a GI. It does not have any Import stamps on it. The bore is in good shape, shiny with light pitting. The stock and hand gaurd are in good condition. The blueing is worn and there is some light pitting but most of the perceived roughness is casting marks. This rifle has a threaded muzzle which allowed the use of rifle grenades and comes with two magazines.
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 and at least 12,755 were made. The Walther design fared better in combat but still suffered from reliability problems. In 1943 Walther combined 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 between 1943-1945.
