I found this random pic of a gun online, what is it?
The Germans experimented with all sorts of things during ww11 this is one of those .
STG44 with a curved barrel attachment. I have also seen pictures of these with a prism style optical sight attached. Designed for street to street urban fighting as the Russians were advancing.
Yep. Originally designed to keep enemy off a tank it was repurposed for street-to-street fighting.
Hard on barrels, though.
The mighty stg 44
The first assualt rifle
Sturmgewehr 44 in German means storm rifle
looks like a original corner shot lol. i bet they used a mirror around the corner, or attached.
