Sorry for the poor audio quality – I am back at the Cody Firearms Museum talking to Jonathan Ferguson, Keeper of Firearms & Artillery at the Royal Armouries in the UK. Jonathan has written a new book on the history of British bullpup firearms, which Headstamp is very proud to be publishing!

Today we are looking at the finer details of an E.M.2 rifle; specifically Jansen’s own personal rifle. He brought this with him, we believe, when he moved to the United States to start working for Winchester in the 1950s. The rifle is currently in the collection of the Cody Firearms Museum, and Jonathan will use it to explain some of the many changes that were nearly continuously being made to the E.M.2 as it went through trials.
