This is sure to get your attention in the trenches
Here we see perhaps the pinnacle of German Great War sniping rifles.
It is a JP Sauer & Sohn Gewehr 98 Sniper Rifle with detachable Zeiss 2.5x monocular optical sight that superimposed a pyramidal aiming point in the field of view. The large objective allowed for better light-gathering, but the best feature was a radium-enhanced reticle that allowed precise sighting in near darkness.
Best of all, the optic could be removed easily if the regular “iron sights” were the best for a specific shooting scenario.
Also of note is the 20-round “trench mag,” hinged breech cover to keep mud, blood and beer out, and the classic Mauser pigsticker on the end, for when raiders come a’ callin.
