The Chap takes you through his French MAS-36 rifle, and gives it a good wringing out on the range.
Adopted by France for rear echelon troops while front line soldiers were supposed to get a shiny new semiauto, this rifle ended up as a state of the art front line weapon instead. The Germans also used them in large numbers as “Beutewaffe”.

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.
