Hey guys i am wanting to do a fallschirmjager sniper type of thing. I have been looking it up online but nothing much. I might be thinking of a german marksman but i am not sure . I am getting a g-43 hopefully so what would i do for this?

just to let you know FJ snipers were so rare in ww2 that they were virtully non existent there were some but very few, you would need a Full fj kit depending on the era that you would want to portray but the g43 would limit you to later war impressions

Great pics, Adler. I love the non-regualtion headgear in the second pic. ;D
The third pic shows something we now call a "scout mount" scope arrangement. A few years ago someone loaned me a gun magazine with an article about that. Unfortunately, I didn't hang onto it. The gist of it was that early in the war the Wehrmacht came up with what we refer to as "designated marksmen." Not quite snipers but the better shots in a gruppe, equipped with Kar98's with long eye relief, low powered (1.5-2x) scopes. Unfortunately for the grunts, a shortage of sniper rifles meant that most of these DMR rifles were reallocated to snipers. I want to say that the designation for these rifles was "Adalbert B", at least that name is stuck in my head. I've done some Googling, but haven't found anything on it. Wish I'd hung onto the magazine.

I've got a ZF41 K98 (real rifle) and it's about the most pitiful excuse for a scope. It's 1.5 power and long eye relief. To do a sniper impression, you'd also need the appropriate scope can and binoculars. Andy
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
