2/27/20 - This is a scarce German G33/40 Mountain carbine from World War II. This one was built at the Waffenwerke Brunn factory in Czechoslovakia and they are patterned after the Czech VZ 33. It was made in 1942 and maker coded “dot" with an early Walnut stock. Many of the G 33/40 carbines were issued to the German “Gebirgstruppen”, or Mountain Infantry, where the metal plate on the left side of the butt was used to keep the stock from harm while using the rifle for assistance in climbing. The rifle is all matching and original with about 70-80% blue remaining, showing general thinning on the bands and trigger assembly. Original stock is matching numbered to the receiver with waffenamt on the bottom of stock. The stock is fairly nice with just a few dings. The bore is terrific. Original cleaning rod and sight hood is included.
