The latest design in Russian pistols, is the Tokarev Automatic Pistol, *C. C. G. P. Photographs of this weapon show it to very closely resemble our own Colt Pocket Automatic Pistol Caliber .380 except that it is somewhat larger and is equipped with a push-button nagazine release as in the case of our own Army automatic pistol, and that the slide stays open when the last shot has been fired. The barrel length is somewhat over 4 2 , the overall length about 7 . The magazine lolds 8-cartridges....

Barrett Firearms Manufacturing CoUSA

While at over fifteen kilos the Light Fifty may seem anything but light, it is well under half the weight of the M2HB machinegun, which until recently was the only major infantry weapon to fire the .50in Browning round. The M82A1 is a simple, rugged weapon that works much like a recoil-operated pistol. On firing, the barrel and bolt are both blown back until the round has cleared the weapon, whereupon the barrel stops and the bolt keeps moving to complete the cocking and loading cycle. The...

Cycle of Operation

This gun is fed by a closed-loop type disintegrating metallic-link belt holding any number of rounds desired. As with the Browning M2 caliber .50 aircraft machine gun, the cover can be raised, the belt inserted from either side (depending upon right- or left-hand feed adjustment), and the first round of the belt is engaged in the breech slide extractors. Operation of the automatic or manual charger withdraws the round from the belt on the opening stroke, chambers the round, and locks the breech...

Development Programs for the T T and T

The earliest two guns of the caliber .50 Browning design, which were constructed in the year 1918, fired at a cyclic rate of 500 rounds per minute. Improvements of these weapons resulted in the Ml921 aircraft gun, actually standardized in 1923, and the M1921 water-cooled gun which was officially adopted in 1925. Only a small number of each were procured. These weapons had a nominal rate of fire of 500 to 600 rounds per minute but were handicapped by their being able to feed only from the left...

Functioning of the Browning Machine Gun Caliber M

Although this gun is an automatic weapon, it is necessary to cock it manually to start the operating sequence. Assume that the gun is cocked and that the first cartridge is in its firing position in a chamber in the rear portion of the gun barrel. When any cartridge is fired, the burning powder violently generates gas which, since it is confined by the cartridge case and barrel, exerts a tremendous pressure. This pressure reachcs 50,000 pounds per square inch, and sincc this pressure pushes...

Johnsons Early Gun Designs

In 1935, Johnson became involved in his first design project, an attempt to complete the development of a retarded blowback mechanism in competition with the Garand and Pedersen rifles. At this time, he wrote a number of articles for the Marine Corps Gazette and for Ordnance magazine. After abandoning his projcct involving the blow-back mechanism, he turned his attention to other possibilities. In 1936, he made some rough parts in a machine shop on Atlantic Avenue in Boston, where he assembled...

Procurement and Standardization of the MA T

On 12 October 1944, Ordnance Committee action was taken to authorize the limited procurement of 31,336 of the T36 guns. This procurement was discontinued after approximately 8,000 guns had been produced because of the unexpected progress made in the development of the T25E3 high-speed gun, which led to its standardization as the M3 earlier than had been thought possible. Following the standardization of the M3 gun, the T36 gun was reclassified as Limited Standard, and redesignated Gun, Machine,...

Acp Browning

The .25 automatic pistol cartridge was introduced in 1908 for the Browning-designed, Colt .25 Pocket Automatic. This cartridge was also produced in Europe as the 6.35 Browning. The .25 ACP has been and still is available in a myriad of inexpensive handguns. It is capable of reasonably high velocities for such a small cartridge. The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .25 ACP is 18,000 C.U.P.

Browning

The .50 Browning began life in 1921 as a military cartridge for a heavy machine gun for support of ground assault. By the end of World War II, it was also a standard cartridge for aircraft for air-to-air combat. Experiments in non-standard military channels resulted in its use for long range sniping, notably by Bill Brophy during the Korean conflict. Through the years shooters across the country built rifles for the cartridge. Gunsmiths rebarreled Boyes anti-tank rifles with surplus military...

Section History And Background

The first Browning 37-mm aircraft cannon was designed in the 1920s by John 1. Browning. Shortly after successful demonstrations of the prototype had been held, interest in all military weapons in the United States became apathetic and interest in the 37-mm cannon did not revive until 1935, when the Air Force needed an automatic gun of large caliber for aircraft. The history of this gun, known as the M4, and of the full-automatic, high-velocity 37-mm automatic cannon M9, is discussed in volume 1...

The Danish Rifle Syndicate of Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1929 formed a company to produce a caliber .276 flexible aircraft machine gun to be known as the Bang. The weapon was the invention of Soren Hansen Bang, an employee of the Syndicate. It used a method of capping the muzzle with a cone-shaped device. This svstem was by no means new, having been patented by Sir Hiram Maxim and used successfully by John M. Browning on his fust experimental model in 1880. Its main drawback was that it demanded...

ONE WINTER DAY IN 1902 a tall, blue-eyed, earnest-looking man in his late thirties stepped off the train at the small Swedish border town of Charlottenberg. He was Ivar Enger, a Norwegian. With his two brothers, he operated a small factory making target bullets in Oslo, Norway. In a few years, his bullets had become famous at every Norwegian rifle range. Now, the shooting fraternity of Sweden, which had been importing German bullets at high prices, asked the Enger brothers to open a factory in...

What Is Recoil

Webster's dictionary defines recoil as to fall back under pressure, or in the instance of a firearm the action of recoiling, or the kickback of a gun upon firing. Recoil is one of the unpleasant side effects that comes with shooting. In some cases, as with heavy magnum guns and loads, it can be severe, even painful. In other cases, it simply contributes to the shooter's inability to shoot a perfect score through flinch. Recoil can be measured in two ways one in the sense of physics expressed in...

Oil Buffer As the action moves forward additional openings for oil flow are provided in the piston rod head of the oil buffer assembly. The piston valve is forced away from the rod head as the parts move forward to uncover these openings.

Safety

When all the component parts are finished and semi- polished, the pistol is ready to be assembled and test fired. This step is done before the components are finally heat treated, polished, and blued, because you will likely have to make adjustments on some of the parts before the pistol will function as designed. Prior testing at this point will save the trouble of refinishing and rebluing any parts marred, modified, or scratched during the test. Be sure that all working parts have a smooth...

Special Note On Japanese Machine Guns

In the last few years the Japanese have imitated the Lewis, Vickers, Browning and Bren guns. Some of these weapons have been so carefully imitated, that they will successfully handle the British .303 cartridge.

In developing cartridges, they have made the fatal mistake of using several designs in 7.7mm (or .303). Some weapons will take this cartridge with a rim some when the cartridge...

To expedite things, he upscaled his already successful .30-caliber M1917 machine gun, proportionally scaling up its .30-06 cartridge and voita, the .50 caltberl Actually, this heavy machine gun was also the first .50-caliber sniper rifle, topped by a scope and fired single-shot during the Korean War. For the first time, an enemy could be engaged at...

General Operation

The Browning Gold shotgun is a gas operated, semi-automatic shotgun. It is capable of shooting five shots (with the magazine plug removed using 2 3 4 loads) in rapid succession with each pull of the trigger. Upon firing, high pressure gas from behind the shot charge passes through two ports in the barrel, through the gas bracket and into the gas cylinder. I ligh pressure gases force the gas piston rearward, applying pressure to the piston rod. As the piston rod moves rearward, it pushes the...

Mauser

The 1890's can rightly be called the beginning of the automatic pistol era. During these years, gun designers such as Borchardt, Mannlicher, Schwarzlosc. Browning, and Mauser focused their mechanical ingenuity on self-loading pistols. Probably the most remarkable of these early designs was Paul Mauser's Model 1896 Military Pistol. Few handguns can match its remarkable success and world-wide distribution. This unique design contains no pins and only one screw, the grip screw. All internal parts...

Imprint of the Breech End o f the Barrel

If we examine the shell head from both sides, beginning at the extractor mark, we come upon the deformations on the forward face (edge) of the shell rim mentioned in the first part of this article, provided the cylindrical part of the shell fits far enough into the chamber so that the shell head is flush with the breech end of the barrel. Strangely this latter condition does not exist in the case of most Spanish pistols, and in the case of the Mann Pistols (calibers 6.35 and 7.65) the cartridge...

Be Alert To The Signs Of Ammunition Malfunction

If you detect an off sound or light recoil when ammunition is fired, DO NOT LOAD MORE AMMUNITION INTO THE CHAMBER. Open the action and remove all ammunition from the chamber. With the action open, glance down the barrel to make sure that a wad or other obstruction does not remain in the barrel. If there is an obstruction, completely clear the barrel before loading and firing again. Failure to follow these instructions can cause extensive damage to your gun and possible serious injury to...

Saw Light Machine Gun Shoulder

The weapon's general system of operation may be described as gas piston actuated with propped breech locking. The bolt comes to battery first, and the continued advancc of the gas piston cams the rear end of the boll over in front of its locking shoulder. This shoulder is in the right side of the receiver. Backing up the bolt from the side of the receiver has been frowned upon by earlier machine gun designers because side loads arc transferred to the normally thinner walls of the receiver....

Firearms Nomenclature Diagrams

A pistol about which very little seems to be known is that developed by Tomisiro Komuro, of Tokyo, in the period 1905-06. These were supposedly chambered for the 7.65 mm. Browning cartridge. A few hundred specimens were made, presumably in the period 1906-1910. The fact that specimens vary in construction details from specimen to specimen suggests that they were never made on a production basis, but probably were handmade. None of these seem to have appeared in this country before World War I...

1930 Sauer Duralium

Sauer pistol was the first to be brought out and is properly called the 1913 Modell as it was introduced in that year. It frequently is referred to as the Old Model. As a matter of fact, no model designation was assigned to it until early in the 1920's, when a smaller version of the same model appeared in 6.35 caliber (Fig. 241). The 1913 Mod. is characterised by its rather unique appearance. The barrel is housed in a rather large tube or cylinder, with a spiral recoil...

Most of the Swedish Model 07 FN Browning pistols in this country were imported after World War II. Although only an enlarged version of the Browning pocket pistol, it fires the fairly powerful 9 mm. Long Browning cartridge. The gun is unusual in that the hold-open lock is on the right side and has no thumb lever to unlock it. When the magazine is released and the slide pulled back, the lock drops free. Though these guns were in the Swedish service for about 50 years, they are generally in...

22 Caliber Rim Is Bent Upon Firing

Proper Trigger Pull

Nccessary is the thorough polishing of contact surfaces of the full-cock notch and of the sear. This is done with the fine carborundum and the white Arkansas hand stones. If the double-action pull of a revolver is too hard, examine all parts, including the cylinder ratchet and the hand which engages it, for burrs. These, when found, are polished off with the white Arkansas stone. A dragging cylinder lock will also cause a heavy double-action pull. This is easily discovered by examining the...

This is a long-recoil operated rifle using military cartridges, but is of very complicated design. A long-recoil automatic weapon may be generally defined as one in which the barrel and the breechblock recoil locked together for a greater distance than the overall length of the cartridge employed. The barrel stays locked to the breech mechanism for the full length of the unlocking strode. The breech mechanism is then caught and held automatically by a special catch while a barrel-return spring...

The Cartridge

Extractor groove, but these have not been a particularly successful compromise. Rimless cases need a method of accurate location in the chamber and this is normally achieved by using a bottleneck case, in which the headspace is determined by the contact between the shoulder of the case and the matching part of the chamber. With straight or tapered cases this becomes more difficult to achieve, so such cases often have a projecting belt just in front of the extractor groove to provide positive...
