Nazi-Occupation "Stomperud" Krag Rifle


Subscribe to Channel

When the Germans occupied Norway, they took advantage of the arms production facilities at the Kongsberg Arsenal to make a number of Krag rifles to their own specifications. They were made with a mixture of new parts and existing rifles, and all retained the Norwegian 6.5x55mm chambering. The German features were elements like sights, sight hood, and bayonet lug that duplicated those of a Kar98k. Despite being made for two years, not many were actually completed - a testament to the Norwegian stubbornness against aiding Germany (Quisling aside).
