By surprisingly popular demand, here’s a video about primary extraction, which is how a sticky case is shaken loose from the chamber after firing.
Featuring an M1 Garand, which has (almost?) no primary extraction, a Mauser Kar98k which has the most common type of cam-based extraction, a Lee-Enfield No.4 (NOT an SMLE), and a Swiss Schmidt-Rubin K31. The last of these is a straight-pull with a really, crazy powerful primary extraction based on helical locking lugs.
For the observant, this video is actually also a stealth Lee-Enfield No.4 vs. Mauser 98k video 😀
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.
