Swiss Straight-Pulls Episode 2: 1889 rifle

Bloke takes a trip through the history of the straight-pull Schmidt-Rubin 1889 rifle in 7.5×53.5 mm GP90 calibre. This video was going to be complete with a mechanical description, but a last-minute executive decision was taken to split it in a humorous way. Or, if not humorous, at least bizarre. Thank you for your understanding. And please hang around after the end card.

Tons of comedy / culture references in this one, shame I’m just not that funny… See if you can spot them!
