Yes, thats correct, but it was never said that this guy carries a PPSH-41. It was only said that the PPSH-41 was very liked by German troops.

Some great pictures. I knew the PPSH was widely used, but the SVT series seems to get a lot of action too.

I've yet to see a German with an M1 Thompson SMG though. The .45 ammo would be something totally our of their logistics chain I guess.

The rifles in the pic above are not MN's. MN's have straight bolt handles and somewhat curved grips. These have curved bolt handles and straight grips. Maybe old Mausers, like the model 1888 ones being used for training?

To be accurate, it is not actually an M1. It's an earlier model exported to France which is closer to the 1920's gangster Thompsons (vertical foregrip). However, your point is well taken. For my carelessness I've gone back through every page on this thread to review all pics again. So many good ones.

I knew that those arent M1 Thompson SMGs, but i thought you are more interested in seeing a German soldier with a .45 caliber gun. So i gave you that hint. :wink:
