The Mauser es340b was a single shot .22 long rifle. It was made too look and feel like a Mauser 98K. It is not a sniper rifle. It is a target rifle.

What sniper did the Germans use in world war 2?

What is the price of World War 2 German sniper rifle?

A WWII German sniper rifle is at once VERY rare. If you chance upon one at a gun show, depending on the condition of the piece, it can fetch at least $1,500. And THAT would be the low-end price for a Mauser KAR 98 (bolt action) with an original scope in perhaps rough condition. You would have to be very careful that the rifle itself had the original scope (Zeiss optik, or Henseldt type) matched to the rifle. Now the rifle itself should also have matching numbers on every piece in order for the value to be justified. There have been numerous post-war-to-present Mausers fitted with scopes and the unwary buyer not knowing this can purchase a "re-conditioned" Mauser fitted with an original German scope, but the value of such a rifle will be reduced as that sniper was not truly original. I have seen these going for $1,300. But an original GI bring-back in above average shape and un-tampered with will bring upwards of $3,000.


What were the Names of world war 2 sniper rifles?

During World War 1 the sniper rifles were mostly the standard issue rifle that had a telescopic sight or Scope installed. The three main standard issue rifles that were used and modified for sniper detail were: the British Lee Enfield, The German Gewehr 98, and the American 1903 Springfield.


What weapon might have had the widest use during World War I?

The German Gewehr 98 rifle and its derivatives. The reason behind this was because of the Mauser bolt-action design that was used in this rifle was so reliable and robust that it was copied by numerous other nations. The American Springfield 1903, for example, was almost a direct copy of the Gewehr 98. Springfield was actually sued by Mauser at one point because of the similaries.
