Please excuse the state of the blackboard and the sketches…. Will do better next time!
Bloke goes all science teacher and blokesplains why a G41 does not have a “Bang”-type gas system on the basis of some chalk schematics tortured from patent documents.
For info on the Bang rifle and system, see here: https://www.forgottenweapons.com/m1-garand-development/danish-bang-rifle/
And for an explanation of the G41(W) and its gas system, see the video from Forgotten Weapons here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m38NQLwpQgo

Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
