Hi, very interesting the history of your grandfather´s carbine, Glorfindel. May I ask you if the firearm was stored with the uniform (the helmet was part of the uniform or a piece of equipment?) in home or it was in the unit´s storege? Hi, Dalamace! Fine to have the G2 with stanag magazine! (I don´t have any previous view of the G2), well done additions.
Two hungarian Mannlicher short rifles, the interwar carbine FEG 35M, chambered for the 8 mm rimmed round,
but with the introducction of the well liked Kar98, the following Mannlicher was chambered to the standard German round 7.92x57 and had the internal 5 round magazine of the German rifle.
