The G33/40 Carbine was made by the excellent Czech factory at Brno under German occupation (between 1940 and 1942). It was essentially a copy of the Czech vz.33 carbine, and was specifically issued to the Gebirgstruppen (mountain troops). It is easily distinguished from a typical Mauser by a couple characteristics: a shorter barrel (19.4″ compared to the K98k’s 24″) and a protective metal plate on the left side of the buttstock.
The “G” in G33/40 stands for Gewehr, i.e. rifle in English. Barrel length for G33/40 is 19.6 inches with nominal weight of 7.9 pounds. G33/40s are carbines in fact.
What else makes a G33/40 so special? One thing is its origins: G33/40’s were not made in Germany. They were produced at the huge arms producing complex in Brno, Czechoslovakia, a country under German domination at the time. Another specific was its purpose for issue to German “Gebirgstruppen” or mountain troops. Because it would likely be used as a “walking stick” on icy slopes, the left side of its buttstock was given a sheet steel protector plate.
Here are some specifics about G33/40’s. They carried the basic Mauser Model 98’s internal box magazine with 5-round capacity. Sights consist of a mere blade front with open rear graduated to 1,000 meters. There is no provision for windage adjustment save for drifting the front sight in its dovetail. It was issued to Alpine ski troops. It fired the exact same 7.92mm round, and had the same Mauser 98 action
In a most unusual feature, since the rifle would likely be used as a“walking stick” on icy slopes, the left side of its buttstock was given a sheet steel protector plate
During the Nazi era in Germany the Wehrmacht did not put manufacturers’ names on weapons. Instead they were given codes consisting of numbers and/or letters plus the year of production. When first devised, G33/40’s were marked “945,” and most if not all of those were dated 1940. Soon thereafter the code was changed to “dot” with the year
