Colt M1911
This gun was originated from Brazil. This gun
was used by Germans and the USA. The M1911 is a
single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, and
recoil-operated handgun chambered for the .45 ACP
cartridge. John M. Browning designed the firearm
which was the standard-issue side arm for the
United States armed forces from 1911 to 1985.

This gun was originated from France. This gun was
used by the Germans and Finland. The Luger had
been adopted by a number of European nations,
including the Swiss Army and German Navy, and had
been widely considered in many other contemporary
pistol. This pistol was issued to the US Cavalry
and Light Artillery Boards at Fort Riley.

Enfield Revolver
Enfield Revolver is the name applied to two
totally separate models of self-extracting
British handgun designed and manufactured at the
government-owned Royal Small Arms.

The Beretta is a semi-automatic handgun that was
used by Italy. After World War II, Beretta was
actively involved in repairing the American M1
Garands given to Italy by the U.S. Beretta
modified the M1 into the Beretta BM-59 rifle,
which is similar to the M14 battle rifle
armourers consider the BM-59 rifle to be superior
to the M14 rifle in some ways, because it is more
accurate under certain conditions.

The PPSH-41
The PPSh-41is a Soviet submachine gun designed by
Georgi Shpagin as an inexpensive, simplified
alternative to the PPD-40. Intended for use by
minimally-trained conscript solders.

The M3A1
The M3 was an automatic, air-cooled
blowback-operated weapon that fired from an open
bolt. Constructed of plain .060-in. thick sheet
steel, the M3 receiver was stamped in two halves
that were then welded together.6 The M3 was
striker-fired, with a fixed firing pin contained
inside the bolt. The bolt was drilled
longitudinally to support two parallel guide
rods, upon which were mounted twin return
(recoil) springs. This configuration allowed for
larger machining tolerances while providing
operating clearance in the event of dust, sand,
or mud ingress.18 The M3 featured a
spring-loaded extractor which was housed inside
the bolt head, while the ejector was located in
the trigger group.19 Like the British Sten,
time and expense was saved by cold-swaging the
M3's barrel.

The Thompson
The Thompson submachine gun is an American
submachine gun, invented by John T. Thompson in
1918, that became infamous during the Prohibition
era. It was a common sight in the media of the
time, being used by both law enforcement officers
and criminals. The Thompson was also known
informally as the "Tommy Gun", "Trench Broom",
"Trench Sweeper", "Chicago Typewriter", "Chicago
Piano", "Chicago Style", "Chicago Organ Grinder",
and "The Chopper. The Thompson was favored by
soldiers, criminals, police and civilians alike
for its ergonomics, compactness, large .45 ACP
cartridge, reliability, and high volume of
automatic fire. It has since gained popularity
among civilian collectors for its historical

The Uzi
The first Uzi submachine gun was designed by
Major Uziel Gal in the late 1940s. The prototype
was finished in 1950. First introduced to IDF
special forces in 1954, the weapon was placed
into general issue two years later. The Uzi has
found use as a personal defense weapon by
rear-echelon troops, officers, artillery troops
and tankers, as well as a frontline weapon by
elite light infantry assault forces. The Uzi has
been exported to over 90 countries. Over its
service lifetime, it has been manufactured by
Israel Military Industries, FN Herstal, and other
manufacturers. From the 1960s through the 1980s,
more Uzi submachine guns were sold to more
military, law enforcement and security markets
than any other submachine gun ever made.

The M1941 rifle used the energy from recoil to
operate the rifle. As the bullet and propellant
gases moved down the barrel, they imparted a
force on the bolt head that was locked to the
barrel. The barrel, together with the bolt, moved
a short distance rearward until the bullet left
the barrel and pressure in the bore had dropped
to safe levels. The barrel then stopped against a
shoulder allowing the bolt carrier to continue
rearward under the momentum imparted by the
initial recoil stage. The rotating bolt, which
had eight locking lugs, would then lock the bolt.
Following, a cam arrangement then rotated and
unlocked the bolt to continue the operating
cycle. Germany, Poland, Norway, France, Greece
etc all used the effective M1941.

The KragJørgensen is a repeating bolt action
rifle designed by the Norwegians Ole Herman
Johannes Krag and Erik Jørgensen in the late 19th
century. It was adopted as a standard arm by
Denmark, the United States of America and Norway.
Instead of a charger, single cartridges were
inserted through the side opening, and were
pushed up, around, and into the action by a
spring followed. The design presented both
advantages and disadvantages compared with a
top-loading "box" magazine. Normal loading was
one cartridge at a time, and this could be done
more easily with a Krag than a rifle with a "box"
magazine. The KragJørgensen is a popular rifle
among collectors, and is valued by shooters for
its smooth action. The weapon was very effective.

Gewehr 43
The Gewehr 43 is a 7.9257mm Mauser caliber
semi-automatic rifle developed by Nazi Germany
during World War II. It was a modification of the
earlier G41 , using an improved gas system
similar to that of the Soviet Tokarev SVT-40. The
Volkssturmgewehr, "People's Assault Rifle" is the
name of several rifle designs developed by Nazi
Germany during the last months of World War II.
They share the common characteristic of being
greatly simplified as an attempt to cope with
severe lack of resources and industrial
capacities in Germany during the final period of
the war.

M1 Garand
The M1 is an air-cooled, gas-operated, clip-fed,
semi-automatic, shoulder-fired weapon. This means
that the air cools the barrel that the power to
cock the rifle and chamber the succeeding round
comes from the expanding gas of the round fired
previously that it is loaded by inserting an
en-bloc metal clip (containing eight rounds) into
the receiver and that the rifle fires one round
each time the trigger is pulled. After the eight
rounds have been shot, the empty clip
automatically ejects with an audible "ping" noise.

MG 42
MG-42 machine guns were the mainstay of German
infantry (and vehicle) firepower during World War
II, and it will take several videos to properly
cover them.

M1914 Johnson Machine Gun
The M1941 light machine gun was designed by a
Boston lawyer and Captain in the Marine Corps
Reserve named Melvin Johnson Jr. His goal was to
build a semi-automatic rifle that would
outperform the M1 the Army had adopted. By late
1937, he had designed, built, and successfully
tested both a semi-automatic rifle and a
prototype light machine gun. Each shared a
significant number of physical characteristics
and common parts, and both operated on the
principle of short recoil with a rotating

The Lewis gun
The Lewis gun (or Lewis automatic machine gun or
Lewis automatic rifle) is a World War I-era light
machine gun of American design that was perfected
and widely used by the British Empire. It was
first used in combat in World War I, and
continued in service with a number of armed
forces through to the end of the Korean War. It
is visually distinctive because of its wide
tubular cooling shroud around the barrel and
top-mounted drum-pan magazine. It was commonly
used as an aircraft machine gun, almost always
with the cooling shroud removed, during both
world wars.

Work on the weapon commenced in 1943. Three
prominent Soviet engineers were asked to submit
their own designs Vasily Degtyaryov, Sergei
Simonov and Alexei Sudayev. Among the completed
prototypes prepared for evaluation, the
Degtyaryov design proved superior and was
accepted into service with the Soviet armed
forces as the 7.62 mm ?????? ??????? ?????????,
P?? (RPD, Ruchnoy Pulemyot Degtyaryova or
"Degtyaryov light machine gun") model 1944.
Although the RPD was ready for mass production
during the final stages of World War II, large
scale delivery of the weapon did not begin until
1953.1 During the Vietnam War, the RPD served
the Vietcong as their standard light machine gun
