You’ve probably heard all the stories about negligent discharges with open bolt SMG’s such as STEN’s, Sterlings etc. But what is it about the systems that causes this risk, and what impact does this have with operating them? Why is it backwards compared to normal, closed bolt operation rifles such as AR-15’s, AK-47’s etc.?

L2A3 Sterling Mk.4
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.
