The Gewehr 43, Karabiner 43 (G43, K43; Gew 43, Kar 43) was a semi-automatic rifle of Nazi Germany developed during World War II, developed from the G41(W) but using the gas system of the Tokarev SVT40.
By 1940, it became apparent that some form of a semi-automatic rifle with a higher rate of fire than the existing bolt-action rifle's was needed to improve the infantry's combat efficiency.
This is as opposed to another type of gas-actuated system in which the gasses push back on a piston to open the breach to the rear.

 TANAKA Karabiner 98k Review
Personally I think that's really impressive for an UNTUNED gas rifle with adjustable hop up I shot the 98k from the prone position, the 98k was resting on my hand.
It is of course possible to shoot a more accurate grouping with the rifle set on a sandbag or some other stable rest.
At the top is the Tanaka 98k note the different stocks, but mine is not the german version 98k, unlike the tanaka 98k replica.

 [feu]----{JmJ} -
It was the direct inspiration for the Russian AK47, the most prolific gun in the world.
If the war had continued another year, the SG44 would have replaced every other rifle, ligh machine gun, and submachine gun in the Wehrmacht, including the antique Karabiner 98k and anemic MP38.
The wisdom of the assault rifle concept has been born out in that, with the exception of a few specialized positions such as the sniper, virtually every soldier in every army today carries a descendent of the SG44.
