All of the Nordic allies Norway,Sweden were armed with the Mauser turn bolt rifle. Most if not all South American allies were armed with Mausers.

Whatever you say. We all know how much the South American Allies contributed to victory over the Nazis.

Geesh.

For crying out loud. It is a video about the Garand, the Enfield, and the Mosin. The reason the Mauser is not in there is because IT'S NOT ABOUT MAUSER.

You might as well complain about why a third team wasn't given any playing time in a football game.

If the guy had but spent only a few minutes checking his facts about the SA effort, he would have learned:

Brazil, from 1942, participated in anti-submarine warfare in the South and Central Atlantic and; in July 1944 sent an Expeditionary Force of 25,000 army and air force personnel to the Italian campaign; Mexico, in March 1945 sent an air force unit, Escuadrón 201 to join the US Far East Air Force, during the Philippines campaign.

The other 18 countries from this group contributed support in many ways such as providing necessary metals and other raw materials towards the war effort.

As for what Brazilians used when they found their way to Italy:



The Brazilian Expeditionary soldiers, psychologically ill prepared, overcame, more than anybody else, difficult and shameful situations from the Atlantic crossing to the front that happened over and over again in view of the uncertainties of war. American authorities were disappointed first with the inadequate health conditions of the first Brazilian troops that reached Italy. They were also disappointed with inadequate uniforms, coats and shoes wore by Brazilian troops. The U.S. Army had to provide adequate clothing and equipment by General Mark Clark's personal effort. Brazilian military authorities were not concerned about the information brought by the Observer Group, in December 1943 that was sent to Italy and Northern Africa, and about other information, not less important, reported by Brazilian officer serving in the Fifth Army.

It was under such an unjustifiable shame that Brazilian troops started war operations in September, 1944: American guns and ammunition, American shoes and coats, almost all American food (even the Brazilian coffee could not be used). As for the uniforms, besides being of poor quality and too light for low temperatures, they were similar to the enemy's, dangerously confusing aviation and our Allies, who could take us as opponents.


So, Brazil, maybe it was the thought that counts, but next time, you can sit it out.

I'm so sick of the 3rd team not getting any playing time! It's just not fair!

Sorry I still think Mosins are the worst mil-surp out there, Even after my M39, Everything the Finns did was good but it still has the horrible Mosin receiver and bolt.. Its not really that they are "bad" its just all the others are that much better....

I did not think the guy was that knowledgeable & he mispronounced a lot of words & used a lot of wrong term terminology.

Buy directly from the Civilian Marksmanship Program, where you will have the best rifles and assurance of their function and quality. You can pick up a nice "service grade" still for around $700, including shipping.
Very sound advice. Who knows how much longer they will be available under the current administration.
