Krieghoff Paratroop Rifle

The Krieghoff rifle.

The Krieghoff Paratrooper Rifle was a prototype rifle developed in Nazi Germany in the early 1940s.


The Krieghoff Paratrooper Rifle was one of three prototypes to enter trials for the Fallshirmjäger service rifle, the others being the Knorr-Bremse Paratrooper Rifle and the FG 42. It was ultimately rejected in favor of the FG 42, after which Krieghoff started producing their own FG 42 rifles.[1]
