    The muzzle flash is due to the short 19.5 inch barrel. Compare that to a K98 with a 23.5 inch (600 mm) barrel. There's just no way to lose that flash in a barrel of that length, and Fallschirmjager must have been quite blind after the first burst in night fighting.

    Lord Love a Duck! I'm sure that's someone's collection. From what I can see they're all Mausers.

    Broomstick Mausers would be much more desirable. But no way would I turn down this cache.

    I find this unconventionally handsome, though that perhaps says more about a fascination with intermediate technologies than anything else.
    Knowing what end result is required, but still grasping for exactly what form that should take.

    I would think a lot less complicated than some other conventional multi-shot shot guns.

    I am not convinced that is an AA-12 in the video Bobby posted. Look at the spacing between the trigger and the magazine and compare it to the AA-12 -- the one is Bobby's video is further apart.

    I didn't notice that ! I found another pic of a MPS AA12 on military factory dot com that has a different configuration but still has enough difference to make me wonder now. Bobby's video also has what looks like a bracket under the stock ahead of the cylinder ?

    Couldn't think of a better place to put this...

    Found in a school cupboard by the better half.
    Imagine introducing a 1911 shaped Clinometer to modern schools. :)

    If a pheasant took flight right in front of me I would be right on it in say......27.8 seconds! .......................Seriously I do not recall seeing a drilling with three rifled barrels of two calibers and a shotgun.

    Some of these guns make me cringe, others laugh.
