Greatest World War 2 Rifles


The Top Ten

1 M1 Garand

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"...!

Greatest battle implement ever devised

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

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

5 Thompson M1A1

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

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

6 Lee Enfield Smle No.4
7 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.

8 Springfield

This is the coolest sniper of WWII - Razor79

9 PTRS-41


10 Mauser Kar98k

The Contenders

11 MP44

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

Its not an assault rifle it's a smg

12 M1 Carbine

Light good in the brush, good for jumping with

13 STV-40
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.

A nice ww2 rifle

16 PTRD Anti-Tank Rifle

Obliterated anything it hit

17 M3
18 Ppsh-41

Not even a rifle

3/4 of these arnt rifles

19 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.
