So, it turns out that Neil of The Wirksworth Gunroom was looking after a very interesting piece that I had no prior knowledge of: BSA’s competitor to the trials which resulted in the adoption of the 5.56mm L98A1 Cadet GP monstrosity rifle that I suffered as a CCF cadet at school back in the 90’s. This rifle succeeded the .303 Lee-Enfield No.4 in Cadet use, and was horrible. Not sure this BSA competitor is much better though, honestly!
Finally going over to the semiauto L98A2 was definitely a good idea…
Neil’s channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsMW_2E0Thy68veG2RQczVg
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.
