What on earth is the guy on the right holding? Everything left of the clip makes me think "kar98k", but then it gets wonky.

Can't be, that gun has a straight bolt, and those are Russian soldiers by the looks of it

Also , is it me? it looks left handed. Old pics are often reversed, because the photographer is long dead, so you dont know, can anyone reference the rest of the pic to see if it is backwards?

The AT rifle? looks like a mauser, probably an Easernt European type judging by the straight bolt.

The Wz. 35 was based off the mauser rifle.

Looks like a Mosin Nagant with the magazine removed and replaced with a bigger one, from an FG42 from the looks of it. mosin.jpgMeyer-FG42-.jpg Definantly a field modification done by the soldier himself.

The picture's name says "Kursk" - that's July 1943. The first FG42's were used during the rescueing of Italian dictator Mussolini in September 1943.

So either: 1) The picture's name is not correct 2) The Russians have a secret time machine (possibly a captured nazi time machine, used to bring such weapons as the G43 and panzerfaust in maps like Prokhorovkha...) 3) It's not from an FG42.

But it certainly does look like a Mosin Nagant.

The magazine certainly looks like it's from and FG42. I would put my money on the picture being labled incorrectly.
