One Feedback on "Shooting the Chauchat"


I just checked – you can still get new 8mm Lebel ammo. Better get a bunch if you’re buying a machine gun!

Saw an article recently about the Pedersen Device, a Goldberg contraption that turned a 1903 Springfield into a semiauto. It was to be used to the Grand Offensive of 1919, but as of the end of the war was determined to be obsolete and almost all copies were destroyed.
