Gewehr 43 Sniper!
Despite the German armed forces of the latter part of the war being subject to huge shortages of material for weapons and equipment production the items that were produced, even at this late stage, were of an excellent standard. On this page we display a rare example of a carrying container for a Zielfernrohr 4 telescopic sight. This box would have been carried by a soldier armed with a Gewehr 43 (G43 or K43 karbine).
It was discovered near Lutremange, in an area hotly contested by the American 35th Infantry Division and the waffen SS, (the SS Feldmütze seen above was found nearby).
