Greatest World War 2 Rifles

The Top Ten
1 M1 Garand

Semi automatic with an eight round enbloc clip loaded with 30 06. Superb rifle, faster rate of fire, second largest magazine capacity and a compatible cartridge to the bolt guns of the other great powers.

Revolutionary rifle, semi-auto firepower gave it a major advantage in the field, best weapon of all time in my opinion.

Good shooter, but a little heavy to carry around by a tired and famished soldier.

The top rifle. It was semi-automatic ( 8round clip) and literally showed no "mercy"...!

2 Gewher 43

Good weapon, sad that the Germans didn't mass produce it and used the kar98k instead.

Great and cheap ww2 rifle

3 Browning Automatic Rifle / BAR

Hard hitter and good range

4 Arisaka

Compared to a M1 Garand this is no match, Arisaka is Bolt - Action Rifle, M1 is Semi - Auto.

Its not even close to the m1 but at lest it's a rifle and not an SMG like most of these on this lisr

The Japanese are so cool.

This gun is crap

5 Lee Enfield Smle No.4
6 Thompson M1A1

One of the greatest guns, you can even attach a barrel

I would vote for it but...ITS NOT A RIFLE It's A SMG

7 PTRS-41
8 Springfield

This is the coolest sniper of WWII

9 Mosin Nagat

I chose this rifle because I have read much about these rifles. I seamed to discover that the mosin nagant sharp shooters had a lot of sucsess.

There, you take Mosin. It is good rifle. You will kill the Germans with it.

What's a mosin naga_t

Soviet snipers were the best during ww2

10 M1 Carbine

Light good in the brush, good for jumping with

The Contenders
11 STV-40
12 Mauser Kar98k

The Mauser Kar98k (Mauser Karabiner 98 kurz) was the main infantry weapon of the Wehrmacht designed by Mauser ,it was the last model of the Mauser Carbines and was later retired by the Gewehr 41 ,the Gewehr 43 and the StG44 (the German version of the AK47) until it was brought back to service by the Volksturm in 1945.
To this day are still a few of these wonderful rifles left and they are something wich really deserves this rank on the list.

13 MP44

It was the first assault rifle ever. And the Germans made it so it has to be good.

The grandaddy of all assault rifles. The project was rejected by Hitler (-_-) but continued as a secret. Also, is the Thompson really a rifle?

It's the first assualt rifle, it's the basses for the ak 47 and similar guns

Its not an assault rifle it's a smg

14 Lee-Enfield

Fastest bolt action allowed high rate of fire (30 rounds per minute). Combined with a ten round clip, this rifle had amazing firepower

Battle tested reliably.

Good sights and excellent accuracy.

I vote for Lee Enfield because it is a very good weapon. the russians used the mosin nagant a very good sniper Vasilij zajtzev used it but I like the Enfield more.

Classic rifle and everlasting. Still used today in many countries.

The first rifle to have a 10 round clip.

15 Krag Jørgensen

A nice ww2 rifle

16 PTRD Anti-Tank Rifle

Obliterated anything it hit

17 Carcano
18 M3
19 STG 44
20 Mouser C96
21 Ppsh-41

Not even a rifle

3/4 of these arnt rifles

22 Bren LMG

The Bren Gun, usually called simply the Bren,
Was a series of light machine guns adopted by
Britain in the 1930s and used in various roles
Until 1992(! ). It could also be used as an effective AA gun and was mounted on many vehicles in WW2. For me it is the best rifle in the whole war.

It says lmg what its supost to be rifles
