RARE Nazi G33/40 'Mountain Carbine'

Acquired from a private collection & recently imported from the US for sale is this rare early war G33/40 made in 1940 by Waffenwerke Brunn (what was the BRNO factory) in occupied Czechoslovakia.

The Mountain Carbines were made only by BRNO in small numbers for ''Gebirgstruppen” or mountain troops before they stopped making them to begin full production of Kar98k's in 1942.  G33/40’s were manufactured in limited numbers leaving few remaining, both because of the number of rifles produced in the original time frame & also in the numbers existing today in original form.  Although chambering the same 7.92mm round as the K98k it is different & has a distinctive metal plate on the left rear side of the butt stock which makes this relatively obscure rifle instantly recognisable to the knowledgeable collector. This was to protect it from damage in the field when being used as an 'Alpenstock' or climbing aid or from ski/snow boots. It is also much shorter with different wood work, rear sight & barrel bands. The bolt is lightened & has a drop down handle.

The known serial number range for the 1940 dated “945” coded G33/40 is from 93 to 7135d, with an estimated production of only 40,000. They were only produced at the Waffenwerke Brunn from 1940 to 1942 and only carry Waffen acceptance stamp WaA63. Of this limited number, how many survived the war & are still around in this condition?

Conversely, the “G” in G33/40 stands for Gewehr, i.e. rifle in English even though they were in fact a carbine with a barrel length of 19.6 inches with nominal weight of 7.9 pounds, specifically for the Mountain troops.

The top of the receiver ring of this rifle is marked 945 which is the Nazi wartime code for the BRNO factory before they changed to DOU & later DOT. Under this is 1940, the right side is marked with Waffenamt proofs WaA63, which were the acceptance codes for BRNO & the left side is marked with the Nazi firing proof (Nazi Eagle or ‘Reich Adler’) & the serial number. The safety is marked CZ in a circle.

Unsurprisingly, the bolt is not matching the rifle but appears to be the complete unit with the bolt handle marked with a Nazi eagle proof mark. It looks all correct including the walnut stock with the correct cupped & reinforced butt plate. The stock has several Nazi eagle cartouches of the Waffenamt proofs WaA63 & is also marked on the underside with the correct number on the rifle showing this is the original matching stock plus it retains the unique G33/40 front sight hood & original cleaning rod.

This is a extraordinary example of an original, hard to find early war rifle G33/40 made for the elite of Germany's Wehrmacht, the much vaunted mountain troops who dominated the Scandinavian campaigns.

It presents as all original as can be seen in the photos. The wood is excellent with minimal marks & it has plenty of the original blue still present as can be seen in the photos.

The bore is excellent, shiny with lots of rifling clearly visible, so definitely a shooter! The muzzle will not accept a PPU ‘8mm Mauser’ round, as per photo meaning the bore is still tight & within spec.

These are highly sought after by knowledgeable collectors. They are incredibly scarce & rarely come up for sale so don't hesitate if you want to own this for your collection.

Do your own research & you will see that this great example of a rare & hard to find Mountain Carbine would make an excellent addition to any serious Mauser collection or a great start to one.
