    Another purchase from last sundays antiques fair. For a tenner this time.

    A flip book on the usage and maintenance of rifles. Its packed with information considering its size. I would assume its for home guard or the sorts considering the P.14 rifle which would of been pretty outdated by ww2. I really like the last page where it includes mathematics to work out speed and target aiming.

    Interestingly the 7.92 mm mauser round has a very small paragraph of text dedicated to it. Not sure if the gewehr 98 or kar98k however.

    I have included the diagrams mainly in my photos. If you want to see the text associated with a specific gun. ask and i will post them.

    Given that it has a price in the bottom right corner, I'd say this was a manual meant for Home Guard use. I have a Bren manual that is very similar. Army-issue training pamphlets typically looked like this.

    Given the widespread use of the 7.92 Mauser cartridge in German small arms, it could be referring to general enemy usage rather than a specific firearm type. Although given the subject matter of the pamphlet, one might assume it is referring to either the Gewehr 98 Or Kar98 rifles.

    I have a similar type of manual to you. Just mine is for the bren gun and is a edited edition of a war time one for 1946. Pretty cool items considering price


    You know these manuals could make for a pretty interesting dedicated thread where everyone posts theirs.......
