Thanks for sharing,

Great video and just goest to show the longevity of these incredible rifles.

They don't make them like they used to and probably never will again!

Cheerio,

Roy

Great video is right. My mags do not come out easily, either. I suppose I could fix that - if I thought I needed the rifle for serious work.

I wasn't aware that mags where typically changed. I thought rapid fire was with stripper clips for reloads.

I see that the rifle is a .303 grenade launching rifle. This was evident by the wire wrapping for reinforcement when shooting grenades. The rounded front sight protectors show that it is .303". Indigenous produced Indian .308" rifles had squared front sight protectors.

I also noticed that the shooter was keeping thumb and forefinger on the bolt knob and using the 2nd or third finger for trigger work. This is, what I understand, the British military taught.

My observations as well.
The stripper clips are now harder to find, perhaps. Too, they hold 5 rounds only, perhaps the lads found faster shooting with changing boxes. I also have thought the strippers would be faster - sure fast with the 6.5 M96.
