Waffen SS during firefight at undetermined location on the Eastern Front. Note the man on the right deploying a Mauser C96 "Broomhandle" with stock. An unlikely weapon for a front line unit in WW2, the C96 in 7.63X25mm was extensively used during WW1. Its shoulder stock, long barrel, and high-velocity cartridge, had superior range and better penetration than most other pistols.
