Espenlaub Militaria. Blitzkrieg Bop. John Brandon.History of the ZF41 Sniper. The study of the Zf. Much debate has been made over whether it was considered a sniper rifle or simply a designated marksman rifle.
Surviving wartime documents discussing the Zf. Borsigwalde continued to produce K98ks and Zf. Production of the Zf. Mauser produced the Zf. Perhaps it had something to do with the German high command down grading the Zf. There are no legitimate Zf.
The reason for Mauser starting production of the Zf. Perhaps it was for use with the Volksstrum, or merely the need for more optic equipped rifles was high. The earliest Zf. The mount used on these early sight bases features rollers on the inside that are also flat. These beveled mounts and sight bases would be used until the end of the war. There are some unique features to Zf. BLM Zf. However, it is possible that some early beveled sight bases had them.

Mauser Oberndorf Zf. Since there are no original wartime documents discussing this, all these features are gathered from observing known authentic examples to find these patterns. There were three variations of scope structure. Type 1 was the first and features a smaller objective and flush elevation knurl. Type 1 scopes were marked ZF These Type 2 scopes are also marked ZF Type 3 scopes saw even more simplification to the internal lenses with a longer ocular tube.
Despite the longer ocular the total length of the scope stayed the same. The front objective of Type 2 and Type 3 scopes are identical at 24mm. The Type 1 objective is only 22mm. While the K98k Zf.

The Karabiner 98k therefore continues to appear in conflicts across the world as they are taken out of storage during times of strife. In February the Heereswaffenamt Army Weapons Agency ordered the adoption of a new military rifle.
The Karabiner 98k was derived from earlier rifles, namely the Mauser Standardmodell of and the Karabiner 98b, which in turn had both been developed from the Gewehr Since the Karabiner 98k rifle was shorter than the earlier Karabiner 98b the 98b was a carbine in name only, a version of Gewehr 98 long rifle with upgraded sightsit was given the designation Karabiner 98 kurzmeaning "Carbine 98 Short". The pattern 7.
It was found that the s. Patroneoriginally designed for long range machine gun use, produced less muzzle flash out of rifles that had a shorter barrel and also provided better accuracy. Because of this the S Patrone was phased out in and the s. Patrone became the standard German service ball cartridge in the s.
The Karabiner 98k is a controlled-feed bolt-action rifle based on the Mauser M98 system. Its internal magazine can be loaded with five 7. The straight bolt handle found on the Gewehr 98 bolt was replaced by a turned-down bolt handle on the Karabiner 98k. This change made it easier to rapidly operate the bolt, reduced the amount the handle projected beyond the receiver, and enabled mounting of aiming optics directly above the receiver.
Each rifle was furnished with a short length of cleaning rod, fitted through the bayonet stud. The joined rods from 3 rifles provided one full-length cleaning rod. The metal parts of the rifle were blueda process in which steel is partially protected against rust by a layer of magnetite Fe 3 O 4. Such a thin black oxide layer provides only minimal protection against rust or corrosion, unless also treated with a water-displacing oil to reduce wetting and galvanic corrosion.
The impractical "Langevisier" or "rollercoaster" rear sight of the Mauser Gewehr was replaced with a conventional tangent leaf sight. The Karabiner 98k rear tangent sight was flatter compared to and does not obstruct the view to the sides during aiming as the Langevisier long sight. Originally, the Karabiner 98k iron sight line had an open-pointed-post-type barlycorn front sight, and a tangent-type rear sight with a V-shaped rear notch.
These standard sight lines consisted of somewhat coarse aiming elements, making it suitable for rough field handling, aiming at distant area fire targets and low-light usage, but less suitable for precise aiming at distant or small point targets. It is graduated for 7. Patrone cartridges loaded with The sight line of early productions rifles have the ranging scale copied at the bottom of the tangent aiming element for setting the range whilst lying down.
Early Karabiner 98k rifles had solid walnut wood or from some had solid oak wood one-piece stocks. From onwards the rifles had laminated stocksthe result of trials that had stretched through the s. The laminated stocks were, due to their dense composite structure, somewhat heavier compared to one-piece stocks.Specialist sniping was neglected prior to the outbreak of WWII, with standard of marksmanship being seen as sufficient to not requite individual specialist sniper training.
Early wartime experience in Poland and France did show however, that there was a need to increase accuracy for sharpshooters, with an aim to hit small targets, such as pill box slits and so forth.Mauser K 98 k + ZF 41 ( 1,5 x scope) Schießen auf 250 m
The ZF41 was therefore developed from a project started innot as an out and out sniping weapon, but as a general aid for sharpshooters. Although intended for use by marksman, such as the soldiers with the best shot at section or company level, by and as the war progressed, the German army was desperately short of sniper rifles and the ZF41 was pressed into service as a sniper scope and used for its original intended purpose. The scope was 1. Initially the rollers were flat, but changed at an early date to bevelled rollers.
As production expanded and to augment the production of sniper to fulfil demand, the Germans developed a field replaceable mount. This could be fitted by a field armourer and simply attached to the rifle, by removal of the standard K98 sight leaf.
Although this did lead to an increase in scoped rifles, there would be an inevitable reduction in accuracy in lots of these field fitted rifles. The ZF41 featured a 3 post reticle sight, standard on German sniper rifles. Initially, the scope was developed in as the ZF When widespread production started init was re-designated the ZF The later scope model was to go through a minor modification, with a simplified internal lens system although externally very similar the later ZF41, with a slightly smaller ocular.
Scopes were reworked by factories, prior to issue, often with the earlier designation milled out or with strike throughs and re-named ZF41 or ZF The scope would often bear an additional white or blue small stamp, stating the lubrication oil or grease used. This was important, as the oil would freeze in the sub zero temperatures on the Eastern Front.
By the telescopic equipped K98 was not held on the inventory or considered as a sniping weapon, enabling general wider issue to non specialist troops. Towards the end of the war, the ZF41 was due to be phased out with issue of the ZF4, 4x power, optical sight, but production was known to be continued until The ZF41 remained in service until the end of the war. The ZF41 was issued with its case Behalterdustbrush, 2 rainshields and clarinol cleaning cloth specialy treated to clean the lenses.
Although field modified ZF41 rifles can be found with most manufacturers, there were 3 manufacturers of factory issue ZF41 K98 rifles:. Although historically deprecated for its use as a sniper scope, the ZF41 has been shown to be highly effective and increase the accuracy at mid to high ranges. This accuracy was not practically possible with standard iron sights and therefore the sight did achieve the job that it was designed to do. The misuse of the ZF41 as a specialist sniper scope was due to the lack of planing by the pre-war German army and the growing demands for sniper weapons in wartime.
It was an expediency measure, with a high number of ZF41s being manufactured. Blog Home. ZF41 sniper with field glasses. A German sniper pair, photographed in at Lake Ladoga, Leningrad.
