Dual Ammunition Supply

Catling Gun

The apparent explanation for the Soviets' use of a dual ammunition supply in wartime is the extraordinary prestige enjoyed by Shpitalny. It is a curious fact that ever since the introduction of fiiearms into military forces, Ordnance Departments have been stumbling into the dual-ammunition trap, usually in a situation involving a war or national emergency. The cartridge case for the Shvak 20-mm ammunition is a Soviet ordnance item that shows evidence of desperate haste in design. It shows few...

This arm known in Germany as the Schnell-Feuer-Pistole is a full and semi-automatic weapon which is not strictly a pistol. It is more directly classifiable as a submachine gun.

This arm is a modification of the original Military Model 7.63mm Mauser, and partakes of most of its general characteristics. It was manufactured with...

DWM pocket pistol

The D.W.M. pocket pistol was brought out by the Deutsche Waffen u. Munitionsfabrik of Berlin late in 1921 and was given the official nomenclature Pistole D.W.M. Modell 22, but the following year the name was changed to Pistole D.W.M. Modell 23, although the only apparent change was in the introduction of hard rubber grip pieces instead of plain wood pieces. Despite the official nomenclature the pistol is generally known, more simply, as the D.W.M. Pocket Pistol. Since the manufacture of...

Until the development of the Tokarev automatic pistol, the side arm used in Russia was the revolver, either the 7.62 mm. Nagant or the Belgian Pieper of the same caliber. These pistols are practically alike. The last Belgian contract expired some time in 1898 or 1899 and manufacture of the Nagant began at Tula in 1900. The Belgian numbering series was continued through 1917, when manufacture was interrupted. When it was resumed in 1921 a new numbering series, starting with No. 1, was instituted...

Early Mauser Pistols And Revolvers

Mauser made two patterns of revolvers, both of unusual design utilizing a coil mainspring as shown in the drawing housed below the cylinder in the frame. The first type was a solid frame revolver. A loading port of standard type was provided on the right side of the frame. This was a standard single action type weapon in which the hammer had to be cocked for each shot.

Among the most popular Browning pistols was the Model 1910 offered in cals. .32 ACP and .380 ACP. Of simple...

Previous to 1935 the Polish Army had been supplied with a variety of side arms, including the F.N. Browning, Colt, Luger, Mauser, and Steyr automatic pistols and the Nagant revolver. For obvious reasons this was not desirable, and the army officials decided to standardize on a single weapon. Manufacturers were invited to submit specimens for official testing in 1935. The firms Breda, Mauser, Skoda, and two Polish engineers by the names of Wilniewczyc and Skrzypinski entered the competition. As...

Around 1910 the Spanish firearms industry began the manufacture of a style of automatic pistol patterned after the blowback, internal-hammer design used by Fabrique Nationale in their Modele 1903 Browning and by the Colt Co. in the manufacture of their Hammerless Pocket Model of 1903. The Spanish imitations differed in minor points from model to model, but all of them preserved the characteristics which easily marked them as Browning imitations. The common design was a 5- or 7-round type, in...

Chassepot Needle

Firing Mechanism Chassepot

The name of Mauser has long been identified with German firearms. It started back in 1871 when the Prussian Army adopted the cal. 11 mm. Model 71 single-shot rifle. It was an immediate success since it used a brass case in lieu of the old paper-covered needle-gun cartridge. When the need arose for a magazine-fed weapon, Mauser submitted his design which combined the Model 71 bolt system and the Winchcster-type tube feed. The tube held 8 rounds if one round was placed in the chamber and another...

Sweden had been armed with the single shot, Remington, rolling-block rifle since 1867. It had been rebarreled in 1889 from 12.17mm rimfire cartridge to 8mm Danish Krag cartridge. However, Sweden was anxious to acquire a small bore repeating rifle. After testing the Mannlicher, Krag, etc., Sweden settled upon the Mauser rifle in caliber 6.5 x 55mm, officially designated M96 to commemorate the year of its adoption, although its origination at the German Mauser works at Oberndorf in collaboration...

The simple locking mechanism operating through check valves, permitted pistol manufacture at a much lower cost than had heretofore been possible in the Mauser factory. The original Mauser 96 pistol was an extremely expensive arm to machine. However, the feature which most impressed Mauser's associates was, curiously enough, the elementary one of...

While there were flintlock pepperboxes, they were clumsy and expensive. The common pepperbox, as we know it today, came about after development of the percussion cap....

These were initially mounted in the windows or doorways of transport helicopters on simple pintle mounts, a practice which continues...

The Great War, among many other lessons, emphasised the need to provide various kinds of anti-aircraft fire. These ranged from high-velocity large-calibre cannon for engaging high-flying bombers, to light machine guns on mountings which permitted high-angle fire in order to provide a last-ditch defence against low-flying strafing fighters. To these problems was added a new threat the tank. It was soon realised that the design of weapons to deal with aircraft and tanks had certain similarities....
