I was reading a few different forum post on numerous websites and I couldn't seem to find a decent straight answer.
Who got issued the G.33/40 rifle and how was it liked? I notice a lot of forums seem to have the same general reply...
"The Gebirgsjäger" or "The Airborne troops" along with the usual reply of "They didn't like the recoil"..
I own a few of these G.33/40 rifles and I have shot both with surplus ammo and reloads. The recoil is not bad at all in my opinion.. I also shoot a lot being the nature of my job, so maybe that has something to do with it.
I was wondering if anyone had any decent sources for information on who was issued the rifle, how they liked it, and if the Heer was the only ones to receive it.
