Greatest World War 2 Rifles


The Top Ten

1 M1 Garand

Good heavy efficient infantry kit and a good reload time and very accurate, a definite recommendation on my behalf

#1 baby that's my money

Definitely a YES

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

Great and cheap ww2 rifle

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

3 Arisaka

Might be the easiest rifle in ww2 to use

The Japanese are so cool.

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

This gun is crap

4 Browning Automatic Rifle / BAR

Hard hitter and good range

5 Lee Enfield Smle No.4
6 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

This gun is #1


7 Mauser Kar98k
8 Mosin Nagat

What's a mosin naga_t

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.

Soviet snipers were the best during ww2

9 Springfield

This is the coolest sniper of WWII - Razor79

10 PTRS-41


The Contenders

11 MP44

Great assault rifle.

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.

The first rifle to have a 10 round clip. - aeromaxx777

15 Krag Jørgensen

16 PTRD Anti-Tank Rifle

Obliterated anything it hit

17 M3
18 Carcano
19 Ppsh-41

Not even a rifle

3/4 of these arnt rifles

20 Bren LMG

It says lmg what its supost to be rifles

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.

21 STG 44
22 MG42
23 MG 34
24 M1919
25 M2. 50. Cal
26 Sten Mk. II
27 M1911
28 MP 28
29 Mouser C96
30 KP 41 (Finnish SMG)
