    an anti-tank rifle, second world war era.

    1. Thanks. I don't recall seeing one with such a long barrel though.

  2. If I were to venture a guess, I would say some sort of crude Eastern Block 50BMG -55six

  3. I think I found it.
    If it is this: 14.5mm PTRS-41 anti-tank rifle.
    The claim is that Vasily Zaytsev had the idea to
    mount a scope and use it as a sniper platform.

    By the way, long overdue on my part, due to being
    forgetful and busy with schooling(science & healthcare).
    The other game fell through, as the other team decided
    to ignore the invite.

  4. Brock That is an Simonov PTRS-41 AT rifle. It is the ancestor of the SKS 1945--Ray

  6. I believe the Russian navy used those. Could double as an oar.

  7. Seems like it is shown in the previous post" improvised weapons." the one I
    m referring to has an east bloc type flash suppressor on it.
