Please excuse the state of the blackboard and the sketches.... Will do better next time!

Bloke goes all science teacher and blokesplains why a G41 does not have a "Bang"-type gas system on the basis of some chalk schematics tortured from patent documents.

For info on the Bang rifle and system, see here: https://www.forgottenweapons.com/m1-garand-development/danish-bang-rifle/
And for an explanation of the G41(W) and its gas system, see the video from Forgotten Weapons here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m38NQLwpQgo

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.
