The Bloke and The Chap take a look at a step in the evolution of the Swiss Federal Carbine 1851, aka Feldstutzer. The Chap happened across a Zurich 1848 prototype, one of several designs on the way from a pure target rifle to the 1851 Feldstutzer.

Of course, they take them both to the range and make some smoke.

About Bloke on the Range

Firearms history, blokesplaining firearms mechanics, mythbusting, shooting sports and kitschy sketches all in one place. An often dry and sarcastic look at whatever takes the Bloke's and the Chap's fancy in the world of guns and shooting.
