Does anyone else have a 13mm Mauser M1918 T-Gehwer? I would like to correspond with others who own this very unique AT rifles. Send PM with e-mail address.
A shorter barrel will reduce the velocity of the projectile which doesn't make sense. With an anti-tank rifle, you want to put the maximum energy on the target. Since the velocity term in the kinetic energy equation is a squared term, doubling the velocity will put four time the energy on the target. Energy deposition on the target is the name of the game.A shop here had 2 awhile back, large rifle. Was there a shorter barrel one made also? Is the last word in Mauser collecting. Doug.
