Machine Gun, Light, Arisaka, 6.5 Mm Type 96 Featured Print

Machine Gun, Light, Arisaka, 6.5 Mm Type 96

Type 96 (1936) 6. 5 mm light machine gun, 1936-1945. Introduced in 1936 as a replacement for the 11th Year Model, this gun was little better than the earlier type. The hopper system was discarded and a 30 round box magazine substituted. However, the ammunition still required oiling which led to dust entering the mechanism. The reduced-charge 6. 5 mm cartridge was also inadequate for machine gun use. More powerful machine guns designed for 7. 7 mm ammunition were introduced in the 1930s, but the Type 96 continued to be produced throughout World War Two. Date: 1936

Two weapons automatic rifle & Germans automatic pistol 1917 Featured Print

Two weapons automatic rifle & Germans automatic pistol 1917

The comparison of the automatic rifle and German's automatic pistol shown here in this diagram. The length of the automatic rifle and the narrowness of the trenches greatly hinder the usefulness in hand to hand work, the pistol being a superior weapon. This applied especially to the automatic pistol - as distinguised from the revolver - on account of its greater accuracy and repidity of fire, together with the lesser labour involved, the rifle needing cartridge magazines that could be emptied from the shoulder. The revolver's hand turned barrel being omitted and the shock of discharge reduced to a minimum. Date: 1917
