    As the title asks, what is your favorite WW2 gun?
    Mine is the B.A.R. (Browning Automatic Rifle)

    Ya, Tompson was pretty cool. A great gun for sure. It fired .45 pistol rounds if I am not mistaken.

    DUDE! SOMEONE ACTUALLY RECOGNIZES IT! Ya, StGw-44. Also known as the Sturm Gewher. It is the first assault rifle ever made. It was a Nazi gun. Translated into english it means storm rifle. When first made, Hitler did not want to buy it for his military. But the producer of the gun still sold it to the military, going against Hitler's orders. Until a few years later when Hitler learned that his army was still receiving this gun and he demanded to be allowed to test one for himself after being told his military loved it. He also loved the gun and started equiping his soldiers with them.

    Yes .45 acp. Very accurate and controllable SMG. Very loud though, especially in closed in areas.

    You know, when I was little, my brother told me that the M1-Garand could kill someone with one shot no matter where it hit... now I know he was joking....

    Loud, yes. But it told all the enemy soldiers to go away or be ripped to pieces by 30 .45 rounds.

    Its true a hit from the .45 any wear will kill you as well. ;) My favorite probably the Thompson. The StGw 44 was probably the most influential post war.

    I also like the Browning Hi Power used by all sides but, ironically especially the Germans, in WW 2.

    Could kill? Pretty much. Anything larger than a hand or foot, it "could" kill. Enough arterial flow to bleed out on a battle field if shot in arm or leg (in the right spot.

    Battle rifle - Garand
    Belt fed - MG-42
    Carbine/lightweight rifle - STG-44
    Handgun - 1911A1

    robo I like your format so Iwill reply in kind:

    Battle Rifle : FG42
    Belt fed: MG 42
    Assault Rifle: StGw 44 (StGw 44 too heavy to classify as a carbine IMO)
    Handgun: Browning Hi-Power
    Tank Main Gun: KWK 43
    Anti Armor Infantry Weapon: Panzerfaust (late model)
    SubMachine Gun: Some Italian Job I keep forgetting the nomenclature for.

    panzerfaust is a single shot, disposable shaped charge anti-tank system. You have one shot. You miss, you die. And no. I just want to know peoples overall favorite WW2 gun.
