    I have been asked by forum members to post a late war K43 for comparison with the early G-43 that I posted in a earlier thread..Along with the weapon are some accessories to include the elusive Last Pattern Manual D1865/1 dated December 1, 1944, in large format, 1945 dated ammo and a black plastic exercise round.... This is the only copy of the large manual "OUT OF CAPATIVITY" that I know of. There is a photocopy, located in the National Archives.. This K43 is Walther (ac) coded, and dated 45.. with DUAL BOLT GUIDES and a mixture of Blue and phosphate finish.. The scope mount is one number off from the rifle and came home that way with a 30th. Inf. Division Vet from Hickory, N.C. Enjoy BILL

    they recalled it k43 because the weapon was verry short for a gewehr(rifle) so they called it karabiner ( carbine

    Skip, No this is the large size manual for class room work, and very rare, it is the last of the G/K43 manuals.. I do have several G/K43 butt stock manuals..BILL
