Ronald  Military history nut. History will teach us lessons, if we allow ourselves to learn.

Remington Rand versus Tula Tokarev. The subjects of today’s poll are iconic sidearms from the World War II era. The M1911A1 is a solid and reliable pistol firing the hefty .45ACP round. The TT-33, while perhaps a little less accurate, still packed a punch and—in typical Soviet fashion—could operate while full of mud (Note: I have not tested that aspect of the TT-33). #wwii #ww2#worldwarii #worldwar2 #greatpatrioticwar #military #militaryhistory #history #pistol #guns #gunsofinstagram #tt33 #m1911a1 #m1911 #remingtonrand #tula #tokarev #usa #unitedstates #usarmy #army #ussr #sovietunion #soviet #russia #redarmy #milsurpguys .

East versus West? When these two pistols were built, they were unified in the fight against Naziism. Of course, for most of the rest of the Twentieth Century, the Soviet Union and the United States led blocs against each other in the Cold War. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #guns #gunsofinstagram #greatpatrioticwar #pistol #tokarev #tt33 #remingtonrand #1911 #1911a1 #m1911 #m1911a1 #unitedstates #usa #usarmy #army #russia #sovietunion #ussr #milsurpguys .

Here is another one I haven’t shared yet. The M1911A1 won the voting between these two, but not by a lot. I prefer the M1911A1 for the ease with which you can change magazines and pure stopping power of the .45ACP round. The P-38, on the other hand, is double action and lighter weight. If I ever had to go to war with something I owned, I would not feel bad about carrying either one of these into battle. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #war #battle #weapon #guns #gunsofinstagram #pistol #remingtonrand #m1911 #m1911a1 #walther #waltherp38 #p38 #usa #unitedstates #usarmy #army #germany #deutschland #wehrmacht #heer #milsurpguys .

A different angle on today’s poll contestants. While one or the other will gain more votes in today’s poll, both are fine pieces of battlefield hardware. These rifles were used with different expectations on the front lines. The Lee-Enfield was employed as a main battle weapon, with riflemen supported by machine guns and other weapons. The Mauser was carried by troops who mainly supported machine gunners. So, the five-round magazine was sufficient for German troops (though they did experiment with a twenty-round magazine), while Commonwealth troops valued the extra capacity the Lee-Enfield afforded them. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #guns #gunsofinstagram #rifle #mauser #mauserk98k #kar98k #8mmmauser #leeenfield #no4mk1 #germany #deutschland #wehrmacht #britain #greatbritain #britisharmy #uk #unitedkingdom #milsurpguys .

I understand some folks are having trouble voting for the Lee-Enfield. I will restart that poll shortly. My apologies for the difficulties. #mauser #leeenfield #poll #milsurpguys .

A bit of a preview of tomorrow’s poll subjects. Over the years, I’ve heard many arguments about the relative strengths and weaknesses of these two classics. Make sure to check in tomorrow and let the world know YOUR opinion of these old warhorses. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #guns #gunsofinstagram #rifle #boltaction #mauser #mauserk98k #8mmmauser #kar98k #leeenfield #no4mk1 #germany #deutschland #wehrmacht #britain #greatbritain #uk #unitedkingdom #milsurpguys .
