The German L23 silencer was essentially a copy of captured Soviet Bramit silencers, complete with the attachment system locking around a rifle front sight. Two hundred of these made for the K98k rifle for German trials. These resulted in a desire for a better attachment method, and this led to the L27 design. The L27 was essentially the same wipe-based suppressor but attached using the locking clamp of the German rifle grenade spigots. A full thousand of the L27 silencers were ordered for production, although a shortage of rubber for the baffles (this was late in 1944) forced production to end early.
The L27 was intended to be used on basically all German 8mm small arms – the K98k, G43/K43, and MP44/StG44. Like the Soviet Bramit, it was intended for subsonic ammo, and a range table was engraved on body of can to give rear sight settings for ranges out to 250m with subsonics.

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
