It’s very compact design uses a hinged bolt modelled on the Martini Rifle action. When a barrel becomes worn it can be quickly replaced by a new unit consisting of barrel, barrel extension, bolt and feed lever. As the assembly has been set up at the factory or workshop no adjustments are needed in the field. Integated barrel and bolt assemblies can be made for a wide variety of cartridges, and these can be mounted in the Madsen frame without any further changes.
Hi, I’m Rob, otherwise known as VBBSMYT.
I create the animations on my iMac using Cinema 4D, which I find very intuitive, and allows me to add smoke and flames, and then send the model to my trusty Render farm.
I make my models as accurate as possible through reference books and particularly good drawings. You may have seen my animations of early torpedoes and machine guns on YouTube. I enjoy finding out how things work and it has been fascinating to track the development from the late Victorian period up to World War 1.
