Remember our recent story about the cache of 5000 STG-44 Sturmgewehr rifles found in Syria? Well it looks like they’re being put to use. Pictures of STG-44 rifles used by Syrian rebels were posted recently on, it’s a shame that those pieces of history will never make it into the hands of collectors, but on a positive note at least they’re being used to help overthrow an oppressive government.

You can also see the Syrian rebel holding an STG-44 above at about the 2:20 mark in the video below:
