Some more from gewehr43.com:

Front line troops armed with an Mg34 heavy machine gun and captured SVT40.

Image

Assailing the enemy.

Image

Two more photographs of German troops with captured Soviet self-loading rifles.

Image
Image

Here is a fantastic image sent in by Jeff Eberle, showing German troops being instructed on functioning and disassembly of the SVT. there are six Svt weapons in the photo!

Image

Another image from Jeff Eberle, showing a German Ski patrol unit and one fellow shows the muzzle of an Svt over his shoulder!

Image

Again, Jeff sends us a photo of perhaps French volunteers on the Ost front. one with an SVT, the other has what looks like a French M-35?! very neat!

Image

another Photo from Jeff Eberle, the start of the brutal Russian winter has not yet beaten down the morale of these Heer troops. there are two SVT weapons in the photo.

Image

Michael Heidler sends us a fine image showing an assortment of weapons including a Bren and an SVT rifle in the bottom left corner.

Image

another nice assortment of weapons on the Ost. front including a Degyartev lmg, and an Svt with the soldier on the left.

"That photo is in The German Sniper 1914-1945 by Senich and Sniper Variations of the German K98k Rifle by Law. Probably a posed propaganda photo; Law indicates that the rifle is a WWI-era Gewehr 98 sniper and points out that both have their safeties on. The photo is dated 9/15/41."
