Following on from the Chap’s earlier vid on getting a Swiss Milbank Amsler barking again, this time he delves in true BotR nerd style into the surprisingly fast conception, modification and adoption of the Milbank-Amsler trapdoor / tabatière system by the Swiss at the close of the 1860s. Both the 18mm rimfire model 1842/59/67 and the 10.4mm rimfire model 1863/67 are featured.
Early BotR vid on the Swiss Peabody and its internals can be found here:
Footage of both types in action is included toward the end for those who wish to skip the nerdy bits.
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.
