4 Historic Military Rifles you can buy today

  • 1. The M1 Garand is a semi-automatic rifle chambered in 30-06 first used in the Second World War. Luckily for us you can buy them in the UK as a straight pull from Suffolk Rifle. General George S. Patton called it "the greatest implement of battle ever devised”. It must be pretty good then!

  • 2. Everyone should recognise the Enfield No.4! A bolt action rifle chambered in the classic .303 cartridge and was used by British Forces in the Second World War with the old SMLE version seeing service in the First World War. The “Mad Minute” was a true test of Marksmanship, a certain Sergeant Instructor Snoxall managed to place 38 rounds into a 12-inch-wide target at 300 yards in just one minute!

  • 3. The Mauser K98 is recognised as the rifle used by the German army during the Second World War all the way up to 1945. It was of course very reliable and accurate. Effective out to 500m with iron sights and 1000m with telescopic sights. A quick search and you can get an un-issued Yugoslav Mauser Model 98K from Henry Kranks for just £295!!!

  • 4. And in the Russian corner we have the Mossin Nagant, chambered in 7.62x54. The sniper version was made pretty famous by a certain Russian sniper named Vasily Zaytsev (played by Jude law in Enemy at the Gates). During the Battle of Stalingrad he managed to rack up 225 kills........so I think we can safely assume this rifle is worth a look.
