mountain rifles, mountain troops
I know this is probably a bit of a stupid question but I'm a bit thick at the best of times but could someone tell me is the mountain rifles the same as the mountain troops.

I've Never read or heard of the Gebirgstruppen being called "mountain rifles"!
There were the Gebirgstruppen and then there was their rifle the Gebirgs Gewehr or Carbiner.
The first was somewhere between 5'4" u. 6', the later was about 40" and called the G33/40.
