    Tadeusz Rajszczak is carrying what appears to be an Austrian M1895 Carbine. First time I have ever seen the carbine in wartime picture.

    I remembered watching the World at War and
    they interviewed a much older man, who during
    Battle of Stalingrad was a young boy soldier
    He came face-to-face with a German soldier in a building, and fired his PPSh-41 at him, emptying the 71 round magazine into the German. In the interview the older man said, he can still see it to this day.

    The Steyer-Mannlicher, M1895 Carbine fired a 8x56R round, and used 5 round clips.
    The weapon was first issued to the Austro-
    Hungarian army during WWI, by the 1940s, ammo
    must have been hard to come by as production of the 8x56R round stopped in 1939, some were coverted to fire 7x57 and a couple of other rounds, that I can't remember.
    Thanks for the info about the rifle Rob.
