M1903 - the spacing between the trigger guard and the "magazine" is too short for a G41...?

Why would a G41 in Normandy in July 44 be of particular interest ?

We know 21st Panzer / Panzer Lehr had plenty of them.

Looks to me like an A3 or A4 with the stamped trigger guard.

I did try, but strangely doing a search for "4 U.S soldiers in Normandy July 44" brings up rather a lot of photos!

Ah, you obviously haven't discovered the wonders of Google image search yet!

Take the url of the image I posted ( http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/6509/camoki3.jpg) and paste it in the search field of this link.

https://www.google.dk/imghp?hl=tab=wi

Tada! All (or at least many) of the other places on the net where the image can be found.

Edit: You have to click on the camera icon before pasting the image url into the search field.

I've got this photo in my archives, but I went for the quick search "41st armored infantry normandy" to find it... ;)

And, Joe, I'm with you - the stamped trigger guard on an '03.

Ok take a deep breath everyone!
There was no intention to make anyone have a brain haemorrhage
Glen- your right I think :lol:

Gliderinf-Im interested in G41/3 in Normandy especially pics of them that I have not seen before and still rare beast in Normandy
Have you pics of Panzer Lehr with them?

Yes 21st Pz,6FJR and GVB had them in pics but other units must have had them

My mistake,Ill keep away from the keyboard in future :roll:
