The Swiss Sturmgewehr 57 (aka SIG 510) is an interesting and unique piece – far heavier and more awkward than its contemporaries, there are however very interesting reasons why it ended up like that. In this video, Dale explains the whys and wherefores of the Stgw 57 design, which fully explain how and why it ended up like it did.
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.
