We do a deep dive into the trigger mechanism, fire selector and burst fire mechanism of the FAMAS F1 using period docs and Chap’s arts ‘n’ crafts models. The mechanisms illustrate perfectly the ingenious solutions that designers had to come up with for first generation bullpups.
For more info on the lever delayed blowback breech system, here’s one I made earlier: https://youtu.be/DGctMiCvD3A
Warning: This vid does not contain firing. Comments bemoaning this will be met with extreme sarcasm!
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.
