Bergmann 1915 MG 15 n.A..png

Being lighter than MG08/15 but offering a similar rate of fire, the weapon filled the gap between the categories rifle and HMG. It saw a large order place by the German army after the battles of 1916, as the German army needed something light enough to combat the Lewis.

[]

Maschinengewehr 08/18[]

Maschinengewehr 08-18.png

A modified version of the heavy and cumbersome MG08/15. The water cooled barrel was replaced by an air cooled variant and fitted with a carrying handle, making the weapons much lighter and easier to handle. Very few eventually saw action on the front, with most being used to counter the Allied 100-day offensive in 1918.

[]

Karabiner 1888[]

Karabiner 1888.png

Developed alongside the Gewehr 88, the Kar 88 was designed for use with cavalry units. With a shorter barrel, lighter weight and reshaped bolt handle, it fulfilled its role well - it did, however, retain the barrel sleeve. With several carbine variants produced later on, it often saw its way to the front lines of the Great War.

Reichsrevolver M1883[]

Reichsrevolver M1883.png

The original M1879 design was heavy and cumbersome. In the early 1880s, Germany decided to make the revolver a little easier to handle by reducing its weight - thus the M1883 came to be. A single action revolver, 'old tech' for its time, it did its job until the Mauser C96 and P08 Luger came along.

Winchester Model 1897 "Trench Gun"[]

WInchester Model 1897 Trench Gun.png

The Winchester Model 1897 was utterly devastating when used within an enemy trench. European military leaders on both sides considered shotgun use to be 'barbaric'. German forces would often execute U.S. soldiers caught with shotguns or shotgun ammunition.

[]

Stielhandgranate M1917[]

Stielhandgranate M1917.png

While the M15 has the simple string taped to the stick, the M1917 model used a cap at the bottom of the stick to prevent both humidity from affecting the string as well as offering better safety. The cap's prongs lining its bottom allowed for better grip in the muddy trenches.
