Panzerbüchse 38

PzB-38 Anti-tank rifle with reloading accelerator - 7.92x94mm (Patrone 318)

The Panzerbüchse 38 (PzB 38) is a German anti-tank rifle designed by engineer B. Brauer at Gustloff Werke in Suhl. It is a manually loaded single-shot weapon. The PzB 38 was very soon replaced by the improved PzB 39, which uses the same ammunition. Only 1,408 PzB 38 rifles were produced, and 62 of them were used by the Wehrmacht during the Invasion of Poland in 1939.

Panzerbüchse 39

PzB 39 Anti-tank rifle - 7.92x94 mm (Patrone 318)
PzB 39 Anti-tank rifle with spare ammunition box attached to the gun - 7.92x94 mm (Patrone 318)

The Panzerbüchse 39 (PzB 39) (German: "tank hunting rifle model 39") is a German anti-tank rifle used during World War II that is an improvement of the earlier PzB 38. It is a single-shot, manually loaded weapon that uses a falling-block action. To increase the rate of fire, a box containing spare cartridges could be mounted on the rifle's side. This is not a feeding device, but instead simply put spare ammunition within easy reach of the operator. Its cartridge is the propriety 7.92x94mm round, based on the common 7.92x57mm Mauser round, but with a much longer 94mm casing. It was first produced in 1939 and saw action during the Invasion of Poland and the opening phases of the war against the Soviet Union. The rifle was phased out by 1944; by that time, developments in tank armor systems rendered most anti-tank rifles ineffective against all but the lightest armored vehicles.

In August 1941, the production of a direct copy of the PzB 39 and its ammunition began in the USSR at Tula as a stop-gap solution. In two months (August-September), only 144 were manufactured, and then this weapon was abandoned in favor of 14.5mm AT rifles.

Granatbüchse Modell 39

Granatbüchse Modell 39 - 30mm grenade

Between 1942-1944, a number of PzB 39 rifles were converted into Granatbüchse Modell 39 (GrB 39) anti-tank grenade launchers by shortening the barrel to nearly half of its original length, from 1,085 to 590mm, and fitting the Schiessbecher rifle grenade launcher. Three types of grenades were used: an anti-personnel Gewehr-Sprenggranate and two anti-tank, light Gewehr-Panzergranate and heavy Gross Gewehr-Panzergranate.
