    If it's '44, it must be Italyicon.

    Which would tie in with the continued use of the PzB 39 that late in the war, and with the building and what they are wearing.
    Just the thing for putting round holes in square heads.

    This could be fun...if Jim wasn't so darn quick!..or such an early riser.
    Seriously, though, that Germanicon rifle looks very futuristic for its time - especially in the wiki photo. Put an orange glowing tip on the muzzle and I might have guessed a phaser rifle from Star Trek.

    It has all the hallmarks of an Accuracy International frame until the butt of course!! I looked particularly at their square watches!!
    Any takers on the second one?

    RE the 1st picture---Man the muzzle blast and energy release in that little room must have been horrendous. I see no ear protection but that was probably the least of their problems with tanks advancing.

    The 7.92x94 round it fired was a strange round using a small 7.92 projectile but with a large case.

    Comparison with a standard 7.92x57 Mauser round.

    Just the thing for putting round holes in square heads.

    Roy,
    Top of the class only three made by Bremmer Arms on PH takeover. Called the Black Mamba, real shame it didn't at least see the light of day.
    Attached a good article on it and some interesting views on how Bremmer Arms shaped up to the challenge!!!
