    Isn't specifically Canadian. If there are no broad arrow in a 'C' on the thing, it's not ours. Mind you, the RCMP used those revolvers at one time. Those'd have an 'RCMP' stamp.

    The Brits used volley fire on a fairly regular basis during W.W. I. Hence the volley sights and the 2,000 yard marking on the regular rear sights of a No. 1 Rifle. An entire regiment(About 600 to...

    "...L7 Ordnance..." Chieftain did and the Leopard 1 does. Challenger 2's do not. They have a rifled 120. Either way, Point Blank Range on an L7 is 1,000 yards.

    It a stock for a 1903 or an '03A3? That sort of thing matters. It may be commercial too.

    Canada wouldn't have any tanks if the rat offspring of unmarried parents Liberals got their way. The CPC isn't any better either.
