The Greatest Sniper Duel in History Is a Myth
War Is Boring

Major Konig may be a myth, but whoever it was, there is a trophy which Zaitsev took from him.

It was a Mauser 98k rifle with 10x scope. It was a very rare thing on the frontline, common German snipers used standard 2.5x scopes.

Today, this rifle is a part of Central Armed Forces Museum exposition.
