    Post Fundamentals of Small Arms Weapons (WWII U.S. Training Films)

    The following video(s) are excerpts which have been extracted from the Videos Category (click here) of our main Knowledge Library (click here).
    Fundamentals of Small Arms Weapons (WWII U.S. Training Films)

    These combined videos demonstrate the mechanics of pistols, rifles and machine guns. You'll learn the difference of how semi-automatic and automatic rifles, fire, gas operation vs. blowback operation. What exactly happens in chambering, locking, cocking, firing, unlocking, extraction, ejection and feeding. It is a three part series combined into one video, with each individual video covering the following topics:

    FUNDAMENTALS OF SMALL ARMS WEAPONS - PART I - THE CYCLE OF OPERATION (1945)
    Covers processes of chambering, locking, cocking, firing, unlocking, extraction, ejection and feeding, all explained in detail with a functional model built up to illustrate each step.

    FUNDAMENTALS OF SMALL ARMS WEAPONS - PART II - THE TYPES OF OPERATIONS(1945)
    Explains the four basic types of operation: Manual, Gas, Blowback and Recoil with focus on application of operating principles to weapons.

    FUNDAMENTALS OF SMALL ARMS WEAPONS - PART III - SEMIAUTOMATIC AND AUTOMATIC FIRE (1945)
    Typical firing mechanisms constructed with models and basic principles of the two firing methods are demonstrated.

    As reviewed by Rickard Z. ….. "This series of 3 WWII training films is an excellent learning tool showing in detail how guns work. Contrary to stereotypes of the Army being bureaucratic critic and inefficient, the soldiers who produced these films really got it right."

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.
