Nice pic. I guess there must be another for the 10 000... What kind of wheels are those?

looking for a Kar 98k bolt in working condition numbered 2020, please let me know if you have one.

This photo is from October 41, and shows desert yellow Kubels with sand tyres, this matches nicely with the Dunkelgrau colour photo shown a few threads earlier.

cheers lennard

These were also known as 'balloon tires'. They gave better traction in loose sand.
