    That makes perfect sense. After serving as long as I did, I'd never believe my forefathers issued an enemy rifle to use in an army that had lots of it's own to use. Just a story to sell a rifle.

    I have a really hard time with that story...really. The disc looks like it's hiding damage that they admit to. I'm sure someone will come along shortly to fill in the story. I wouldn't pay for...

    I agree, it's a fine example of a hunting rifle and should likely stay as such. Too much money will be spent and it won't be right, just close...

    Yep...that's what I'm thinking too. You will likely feel them touching the commencement anyway, they'll stop hard before they should. Too, bullets that touch the commencement have a higher pressure...

    I was working from memory...turning at a low speed... The slowest speed I know of is about 40RPM which is for threading and far too fast for this.

    Saving Private Ryan had much of the weapons fired in the landings done against a bluescreen and they were actual weapons firing. That achieves the realism of sound and watching an MG 42 fire. Then...

    Used against massed opponents such as the British saw back at that time, this would be devastating...cut a swath through a charge. They'd still be over run by masses though.
