Celebrating our 40th episode with a live fire video featuring a replica Gerat 06(H), the rifle that began the roller-delayed blowback dynasty which has included Spanish CETMEs and German HK’s like the G3 and MP5.
Developed by Mauser engineers from the gas operated Gerat 06, it produced a much lighter rifle and paved the way for post war developments. We’ll have a full episode on the Gerat 06(H) in the future, in the meantime check out Matt’s accompanying blog for this episode here: http://armourersbench.com/2018/12/12/gerat-06h-live-fire
