1905 Ross .303 Brit, made or used by Canada, and was used by the U.S. for training.

Owen machine carbine.

Technically correct, but I've never understood how an SMG got to be designated as a carbine.

R. S., this was simply British nomenclature. It is a carbine (because it is shoulder fired and has a short barrel), it goes rock and roll, hence "machine", hence "machine carbine".

Thanks.

I've always understood the derivation of carbine to be from the shorter longarms developed for cavalry from infantry weapons, and assumed it would be applied to WWII weapons in the same way. Such as the Lee Enfield .303 jungle carbine.

Panzerknacker

Sorry TG but I have to erase that...big thing.

By the way you are almost correct but not quite, that pistol had another name.

tankgeezer
11-02-2007, 07:31 PM
Thats okay P.K. I only know the pistol as a 400, they are popular here because of the fairly cheap surplus 9mm largo ammo.

tankgeezer
11-10-2007, 03:06 AM
Since no one has offered another answer, I'll say they are the modelo 1921 pistols.

Panzerknacker
11-10-2007, 08:42 AM
Actually is the "Francisco Ascaso" a variant made in Barcelona named after an anarchist leader killed in action in the early days of SCW.

Let s try with this piece:

Hmmm, it is not.

Drake
11-23-2007, 09:19 AM
I'd say MG34

Panzerknacker
11-23-2007, 09:20 AM
Close , but still isnt.

Drake
11-23-2007, 09:22 AM
Do you count the 34/41 still as a 34 or would those subtypes qualify as extra?

Drake
11-23-2007, 09:30 AM
Anyway I'll just jump back in time rather than forward, MG30

Panzerknacker
11-23-2007, 08:28 PM
Correct. :rolleyes:

My point from the panzer Q&A is probably missing, which would make 2 with this one, cause I had six already this morning, when I answered here ;)

Good looking weapon you picked... the M1941 Johnson Rifle! A competitor to the M1 Garand, it saw US service with USMC Paramarines.
