In: Guns, Italy, WWII
Don't need variations of this #33 the original is more than good enough
#30 kinda tough to get to those mags in a pinch ain't it?:p
I don't know what caliber of guns they are. but if they were a lot of variants it had to be a decent gun
#1 Swedish K
Actually the Swedish K has a fold-in wire stock. I see where you might have thought that, though, with the perforated barrel jacket.
They're all the same. It's an Italian Beretta Mod.38 from WW2 (it actually says it in several of the pictures). It fires a standard 9x19mm round. Like many firearms from the period, the original Model 38A was made out of finely machined parts and was very reliable and well-made, but that proved to be expensive and time consuming. So the Model 38/42 (also pictured above) was made out of stamped metal parts that were cheaper and faster to produce, but reduced the overall quality.
A lot of German troops ended up using these because they were such a nice weapon. In fact, #24 and #30 are German paratroopers.
And yes, BSE35, you are correct. #33 is hotter than everything else on this page.
As much as I know who almost eryoevne is here, it would be nice to have captions for context. You guys run a WordPress site with photo content, you can’t make time to caption images?
