Ah, jeez… just when I thought I’d seen everything I wanted to see about old guns (thankee Othias/Mae at C&Rsenal, and Ian McCollum on “Forgotten” Weapons), I came across 9-Hole Reviews…
…and good-bye to the rest of my so-called free time.
My favorite so far: the K98 and the K98 mounted with what Gun Jesus calls “the worst German sniper scope of WWII” (or something like that). Of course, in the hands of a decent (!) rifleman with good eyes, it’s pretty damn good. Note how his accuracy improves over iron sights, with a simple 1.5x scope and a German #4 post reticle.
No need to thank me — or curse me, for that matter — it’s all part of the service.
