So we deliberately overstressed a Lee-Enfield No.4 rifle, with .300 WinMag cartridges, both dry and oiled. What happened?

Bloke explains to a group how to operate an open bolt gun, specifically a STEN Mk.2, safely. Cos some of it is backasswards compared to the closed breech mechanisms that people are used to.

Since the STEN is blocked at semiauto, it can be legally fired on the range.

Voici ma façon ultra simple pour alimenter ces grosses bêtes en utilisant des outils d'atelier de tous les jours. La technique s'appliquer non seulement pour alimenter les Milbank-Amslers gros et petits, mais également pour les Peabody Suisse, les Vetterlis, Wänzls, Sniders Danois, Spencers, Trapdoor 1865 etc.

Au plaisir! The Chap

Those big old rimfires are wallhangers no more. Learn how to get them booming once again!

Here is my nifty way of making what you need and without expensive tools and basic machining skills. Applicable for feeding not only Milbank-Amslers large and small, but also Swiss Peabodys, Vetterlis, Wänzls, Danish Sniders, Spencers, 1865 Trapdoors etc.

Enjoy! The Chap

Due to a shortage of Lewis guns and a glut of withdrawn Ross Mk.III rifles once the Canadian Expeditionary Force had been completely re-equipped with Lee-Enfield SMLE rifles, Monsieur Huot proposed to modify Ross rifles into an automatic rifle / light machine gun (LMG) configuration.

5 of these are known to exist, this is number 2, and is in the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada museum in Vancouver: https://www.seaforthhighlanders.ca/home-museum

Many thanks to them for the opportunity to handle and film this exceptionally rare piece! Please give them a visit!

Bloke takes his 2012-production .32 ACP and, after having made it vaguely run with an awful lot of work, puts it through its paces on the 25m range. As a comparison, an HK MP5K both with and without PDW shoulder stock appears too!

Apparently these things were called the Klobb in James Bond Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64.

So back in 2016, Bloke filmed the Murtenschiessen in early-BotR quality, with the history of the Battle of Murten 1476: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUev2ZCmqQ4

This year, both Bloke and Chap were invited to shoot by the Société de Tir de la Ville de Fribourg, one of the oldest shooting clubs in Switzerland, founded in 1493, so only a few years after the Battle of Murten itself. Have a look at their website here: http://www.tir-fribourg.ch/

Having filmed it once already, they decided to show the event from the shooter's perspective, with headcams. A bit FPS game style, but ending up looking down on the rifles rather more!

And since we're on a back-to-the-roots primitive shooting roll at the moment, we shot with unmodified K31's. Well, Bloke "cheated" with a fine elevation corrector with a guesstimated setting between 200m and 300m cos his front sight is too sizes too long...

Thanks to Thierry for inviting us, and to Anna for operating the handheld camera while we shot!

Come to our competition on 2 November 2019! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nO33aP77ZjI

Matt of AATS lets BotR test his .32 ACP Welrod pistol [desperately trying not to use trigger words that will set off the YouTube bots...] Even with the rubber wipes shot through, it's really quite quiet - not silent, but comfortable without hearing protection. Also, it's certainly acceptably accurate.

Also compared to a Glock 43 with a B&T can on it.

Many of these British-made pistols were dropped into occupied Europe during WW2, for which the purpose should be entirely obvious...

Apparently this features in the new James Bond film. Who knew?
