    Yes, if I remember correctly these G41s were prone to malfuntion due to the gas operating systems and thus the G43 were deemed an improvement (despite the fact that the G43 itself had problems)....

    I have two G43's but will not shoot them...too afraid they will break and I could not get the replacement parts.

    I used to read a British paratrooper magazine and they would do test firing of historic weapons . They tested either a G41 or G43 and ended up breaking the receiver ! Someone was very upset that day !
    Great looking rifle , very clean .
    Cheers Chris

    Hello,
    A group of french Officers tested the G43 at the end of the war in Europe, while one of them was firing the rifle, the bolt broke and the Officer received it in the head ! Someone was very dead that day ! (true story)
