    In a hypothetical battle? Lee Enfield but would go Kar98k if that means I got a couple MG42 teams on my side.

    I'm a fan of German stuff but would have to go with the LE for the reasons Steve123 mentioned.

    Had to go with the Mauser k98.

    One of the best actions ever.

    I have one. Don't bother trying to hit a target beyond 100yds. A M38 Swedish is also short and light, but way more accurate.
    Some of the mausers are also short.

    you missed all the best rifles however they are mostly from neutral country's (so I guess they don't count?) Sweden with the m96 and m38 both in 6.5x55 and Switzerland with the k31 and earlier the k11
    in 7.5x55

    being that I don't want to die Id hope I had one of them as that would mean I didn't have to go to war lol

    this was with no load development with some not ideally suited pills I found in the reloading room
    k31 at 100m they can do much better with load development excuse the silly face

    out of the ones listed the k98 got my vote although it probably murdered plenty of innocent people under Nazis it is the nicest rifle ive owned from the list

    I went with the Lee-Enfield for reasons listed above. Would of picked a Finnish M39, a Mosin on steroids but suppose that would fall outside of WWII?

    I'd have to agree regarding he accuracy. I don't use it very often further than 100yds. Still good fun all the same.

    Springfield for me. Arguably used a better cartridge than everything else at the time.
