The G33/40 was a German adaptation of the Czech vz33 carbine. It was shorter and lighter than the standard issue K98k and can be easily distinguished from its rifle-length brother by the full-length handguard and unique bolt handle. Despite the outward similarities between this rifle and the K98k, almost no parts are interchangeable.
This rifle was built in 1942 and is one of the later G33/40′s produced before the plant switched over to K98k production. It is not matching and had a sanded stock. It was a decent, shootable example of the type.
