The G.43 was not a bad rifle and had the designers (Walther) been given enough development time, it might have been an excellent one. But not even Der F├╝hrer could order up more time and the rifle never was developed to its full potential. The operating system, a medium stroke piston, has, needless to say, had many descendants.

They are very accurate and it is not surprising that many were used as sniper rifles.
