A Mauser Training Rifle

The "Dreibund Jugendkarabiner"


Page still under construction - mainly imagery.

Dreibund was the name originally given to the Triple Alliance formed between Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy between 1882 and the First World War ; however there followed a further triple alliance between Germany, Japan and Italy prior to the Second World War in 1939. Dreibund is literally a bund (union) of drei (three). Jugend Karabiner translates from German as "Youth Carbine".

The next two images can be rotated and zoomed, either as initially loaded or full-screen for higher definition.

This training rifle dates from the latter period, when such arms were usually intended for use by the young members of the Hitler Youth organisation .
