These are my WWII Russian Rifles. The first two are M91/30s. This was the rifle used by Vassili Zaitsev in Stalingrad during WWII. Vassili 's exploits were the basis for the movie "Enemy at the Gate". The next gun is the M38 which is a carbine that had no bayonet. The Russians frequently had more men than bullets so a bayonet was very useful! In 1944 the M44 was introduced, it was basically an M38 with a built in bayonet. The last rifle is the semi-auto SVT-40.
