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.

3 Browning Automatic Rifle / BAR
4 Arisaka

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

The Japanese are so cool.

This gun is crap

5 Lee Enfield Smle No.4
6 Thompson M1A1
7 PTRS-41
8 Springfield
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.

10 M1 Carbine
The Contenders
11 MP44

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

Great assault rifle.

12 STV-40
13 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.

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
16 PTRD Anti-Tank Rifle
17 Carcano
18 Ppsh-41

Not even a rifle

19 M3
20 STG 44
21 Mouser C96
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.

Used in WW2 and still in use today by some armies.
A wonderful support weapon.
