Large amounts of the Krag-Jorgensen rifles and ammunition were seized from Norway when Germany invaded. Those rifles were issued to third line troops such as would have been at Stalag 13. The issuance of an additional weapon chambering an additional cartridge would have increased the logistical nightmare that is a war time military supply system. A precursor to this being done would have to be a sufficient number of weapons to require the ammunition to be manufactured as it would displace first line stock mfg resupply, so that it could be distributed in an area. For this reason small quantities of captured weapons were not issued as standard armament.
Schultzey carrying the Krag is not a gaffe by the prop-manager as it has actual history behind it.
