In the 1940s the Battle Rifle was issued to troops who served the Nazi deep science division known as HYDRA. When Captain America freed prisoners during his raid on a european HYDRA base the troops stantioned there used the rifle to shoot at the prisoners. Some of the guns were confiscated by the freed prisoners after they defeated the troops in the base.

Upon their return back to the allied zones some of the freed prisoners, like Bucky Barnes and Jim Morita, were still carrying the rifle.

Two HYDRA soldiers carried the battle rifle while ambushing Bucky Barnes, one of the Howling Commandos on a mission to capture Arnim Zola.[1]
