The Karabiner 43 began as the Walther-made carbine of the Gewehr 41, a German attempt at a self-loading design like the M-1 Garand and SVT-40. While the Gew41 was quickly discontinued due to an overly complicated mechanism, the Kar43 carbine was produced throughout the war, with a variant fitted with telescopic sights to be successfully used as a sniper weapon.
