I chose the Kar98 because of the research done on these guns. As well as what I would be best at in a gunfight.

The M1 Garand is a great gun, but it follows the same basic concept of the Carbine; close and mid range fighting. Kar98's, Lee-Enfields, Mosin-Nagants, and the Japanese bolt-rifle would be the best choices because they are powerful, accurate, and are all range weapons.

The BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) was the first small-machine-gun to be developed in war.
The Browning .30 were not only used in ground-based-fighting, but were also the main cannons in American Army-Air Force Planes. However it could not be used like a BAR.
The Browning .50 was too heavy to carry like the .30 or BAR, so they were used for for vehicle warfare.
The MG42 was one of the best MG's during that time. it was accurate, extremely fast, and powerful (I wonder if it could be used like a BAR though).

Thompson's (which had a higher tendency to jam), MP40's, PPSH1's (which was the fastest firing smg) and Sten's were the first full-auto-small arms, but they are smg's and are only gun at close-range.

However, if I were to choose my whole arsenal, these are what I'd go for.

*Scoped Kar98 / scoped Mosin Nagant
*PPSH1 / MG42
*Colt 1911 /w tactical knife
*German Stick Grenades

These are my preferences, because I'd be better as a sniper.

While your jacking the bolt 4 times on that kar i just whackesd your ass with my m1. Because i can get off 8 rounds to your 3. M1 not good for long range. Think you need to do some real world shooting and less research. YMMV

You don't have a whole lot of trigger time on the M1 Garand, do you? Excellent trigger, best sights ever used on a battle rifle, and a serious 1,000+ yard caliber.

The PPSH requires the drums to be fitted to the individual weapon. The stick mags work better, but run dry fast.

And stick grenades? Ever tried to throw an off balance stick accurately? They were more of a concussion grenade than a frag, too. The US had the best grenade of WW2, by far.

I have tons of time behind both the k98 and the M1 Garand I guess that is the plus to your dad liking to collect old military rifles. I got trigger time on quite a few old us military firearms like the Trapdoor, Kreg (rifle and carbine), 1903, M1 Garand, Type 38, k98, 1917, No 4 MkIII.

The Garand is a fine military firearm and won WWII. The rate of fire was 2 to 3 times what a k98 was plus it was deadly accurate out to at least 800 yards. I have fired it out to 600 and would get first round hits on target. The m1 then morphed into the M1a or M14.

I also agree that the pineapple grenade was much better than the stick. Sure you could throw the stick further but like M14 said it was no where near as accurate to throw as our pineapple. Why do you think all grenades are shaped like a baseball now?

You will find the Ma Deuce was used on bombers and other planes for close support not the 30 cal.
