I think that it is NOT a WW2 photo, but more likely a Korean War photo. Or possibly~very early~ VN advisor uniform. I cannot even imagine that to be a WW2 photograph.
Lots of Mosins were brought back by Korean war vets, many were beautifully engraved in Japan.
I've never seen a 91/30 from SE Asia (VN), but I've seen plenty of M44s/T53s, etc. Many of those had grenade launchers.
Have any of you seen a bonifide VN 91/30 bringback, or even a photo of a VN capture 91/30? Or maybe a Dien Bien Phu/Viet Minh or later photo of one?
I'd like to see one. I've seen K98s from VN, some other oddball stuff (you know, froggie rifles), but never any 91/30s.
Even the NVA photos of the war seem to show only M44s.
Anyone?

Yep, maybe a KW press photographer with a pickup, or someone playing "bad guy" at an exercise at Ft. Benning circa late 1950s-early 1960s. Where is his bugle?!
