This short video is a bonus, filmed while we were opening one of the cases at the Cody Firearms Museum to examine another firearm (that video is coming soon) I noticed a sectioned British Pattern 14 rifle, made by Winchester for the British government during the First World War.
It was too good an opportunity to pass up so I filmed this quick video taking a look at the P14’s internals. The P14 would go on to become the basis of the US M1917 rifle.
My thanks to the Cody Firearms Museum for the opportunity to film items from their collection.
