Onwards and upwards with the seventh (!) episode in the Swiss Straight-Pulls series. This time, it's the Schmidt Rubin 1905 Cavalry Carbine's turn. Still with the old GP90 and GP90/03 7.5x53.5 ammunition (NOT 7.5x55 GP11), this was the replacement for the 1893 Mannlicher carbine. They seem to have re-equipped the cavalry en masse with the new M1905, rather than feed them in from a particular date.
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.
