Again with the "Gun Jesus" moniker. Comrade Misfit cracks me up every time.

Thanks. For some reason my name doesn't show up. However, I assure you that I am not B or Glen Filthy.

Rate of fire like the Red Baron era, Vickers gun, Maxim or Spandau.
Ian's vids are more informative, like pointing out the poor sights. And the barrel dip causing 1st shot misses from the open bolt slamming forward. And his video even shows the barrel coming back into alignment between the slow auto shots.

He mentioned that the little tab on the wire stock helps in loading the magazines; would be interesting to see that demonstrated. I haven't watched his longer video on both the M3 and the M3A1, so maybe that covers it.

I once ran a M3A1 Grease Gun range during a training exercise. We were training in Saskatchewan with a Canadian Infantry unit. I was a Corporal at the time, with the Big Red One, based in Ft. Riley, Kansas, and I had a Private with me. We were dropped off in the middle of nowhere with 10 Grease Guns, a couple of cases of C-Rats, 5 gallons of water, a PRC-77 radio, 10 large targets, our rucks full of gear, and 1000 rounds of ammo. We set up the range and waited on the Canadians to arrive. Nobody showed. Got on the horn with the higher ups, the range had been cancelled, and they didn't want any of the bullets to be brought back. Private Felkins and I stayed out there at the range for two more days and fired all the rounds and waited on our pick-up from HQ. We became rather good with the Grease Gun. I wish I could get ahold of one today.
