Real Life

The Gewehr 43 had a very low production rate, only one Gewehr was made for every 50 U.S. M1 Garands.,only 400,000 were made, and the limitations were only 1 rifle per platoon (given to marksmen). Although it had good semi-auto, good accuracy, and good combat-effectiveness, it was not as reliable as American or Russian semi-automatic rifles. It was usually used by low-ranking German officers.

The Gewehr 41, its older brother, was designed by both Mauser and Walther, who had to follow certain regulations:

  • No holes for tapping gas for the loading mechanism were to be bored into the barrel.
  • The rifles were not to have any moving parts on the surface.
  • And in case the auto-loading mechanism failed, a bolt action was to be included (that is why there is a bolt on the gun).
