Moving slowly forwards on the rapid fire Mad Minute series, here’s the first straight-pull rifle to be tested – a Swiss K31 in 7.5×55 GP11. It did surprisingly well – except the reloads, which bit spicy monkey chunks.
(BTW the bloke is not fanatical about the term “Schmidt-Rubin” being applied to the K31 – it’s Furrer’s modification of Vogelsang’s modification of Schmidt’s design, and Rubin only seems to get some credit due to the original ammunition. The official name is “Karabiner Modell 1931” anyway, so it’s not like calling a No.4 an “SMLE” 😉
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.
