Ok other forums have this sort of thing so lets test our knowledge of infantry weapons here's a starter for 10 where was this made as the weapons name is in the title :oops:
Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori which is in Eskilstuna, Sweden.
Teeny pic but is it a Mauser 98?

Edit to add:

Scratch that, Jap Arisaka Type 38.
Ha! Tremble before my might, GunNut!

He seems to have ripped the pic from Wikipedia:

Oooh yeah!

I was just double checking, Scouts' Honour :D
Going back to the first one, is that a Swedish Gevar?? If so, I found one in a back yard very close to Springfield Rd nick in 1975. You pull back the reciver on the top to load 'mauser' type rounds, i.e.. those with the 'silver' heads.
Looks like it was made in someone's shed!

Dunno, one of the Jerry 'ersatz' designs from the end of the war?

beat me to it gun-nut

(Something odd going on with my posts - honest)
