Oh look, it's July 10, 2017 (but depending on where you live, the date may be different). What does this mean? If it doesn't mean anything to you yet (and it probably won't), it's the second year anniversary of me posting a certain blog post about things that came before a very famous assault rifle: the StG 44. You can view the original blog post here.
The only reason why I am building this second blog on this day is mainly because there were one or two users who decided to "nitpick" (not really) on not having certain weapons added inside to that original blog post. So this blog post will address all that stuff, because I ain't gonna add any more firearms to that older post.

Okay, I'm not sure if you know about this stuff, but the Beretta M9 is due to be replaced. Well, at least it has been that way for the last couple of years, where the M9 has been deemed to be approaching the end of its service life. Same thing happened in 1985; when the M1911 was reaching the end of its service life, it was due to be replaced. And it was. By, ironically, the Beretta M9. Now, the competition is already long over and a winner was announced, but let's recap on whatever entries entered into this competition.
This is the XM17 Modular Handgun System competition.
Okay, for starters, other than the obvious "the M9 is reaching the end of its service life" stuff, there are other reasons as to why this competition was started, with the …Read more >
UPDATE: Apparently, Ian from Forgotten Weapons name is in the credits of Battlefield 1 as special thanks.
So. Battlefield 1 is out. A pretty good World War I-styled shooter with the standard mechanics of Battlefield games. But this is not what I wanted to talk about.
My main focus over here in this post... is the weapons. For some reason, DICE actually decided to add some pretty questionable and/or odd choices into the game for the player's use. I'm going to take a look at the more... questionable and odd choices.
Nothing special here, except for some pistols in the entire roster that stand out among the rest.
- The Kolibri
Okay. Let's face it. DICE probably put this tiny pistol in here for laughs. And I really mean for laughs. It is actually available fo…

The StG 44. Or Sturmgewehr 44. Or MP 4 - y'know what, who cares about the name? Let's just get straight to the point. The StG 44 is documented as the first successful assault rifle. Nazi technology controlled by Hitler. Sieg heil.
Anyway, if anyone tells you that the first successful assault rifle is the AK-47, give them a fistful of your knowledge. Anyway, while the StG 44 is the first successful assault rifle, it isn't the first assault rifle. In fact, a few weapons came before it. In this post, I will detail these few weapons that came before the legendary Sturmgewehr. This is: Before the Sturmgewehr.
Let's start off in the year 1893, with a very unusual British rifle.
An odd rifle by any standards, very little is known about this rifle. Its t…

Just thought I'd throw this out there - with the U.S. Army conducting the Individual Carbine competition, does anyone think that the direct impingement AR15 system will eventually fade out? Aside from the Swedish AG-42 Ljungman and the French MAS 49/56, only the AR15/M16 platform soldiers on in military service. I understand that the U.S. Marine Corps is staying with the M16A4 and M4A1. I also saw where the U.S. Army has purchased gas piston actions as add-ons to newly purchased M4A1's. After all these years, ( 50+ years), is the AR15 direct impingement system really as unreliable as some people portray it? Direct impingement does have its advantages, and I read somewhere where the French MAS 49/56 in particular, was extremely reliable in…Read more >

I'm new to this site, but I have to say so far I like what I see and enjoy navigating the site and reading the articles and posts. I just wanted to give my 'two cents worth' on a couple of subjects.
First, there is no such thing as perfect - gun or otherwise. For every different firearm there are strengths and weaknesses. Overall, most military weapons are reliable and effective. A weapon will not remain in inventory for any length of time, if it does not perform at least adequately. Military weapons especially, see some of the hardest use and abuse in any area of life. The endless debate of AK47 vs M16, semi-auto vs pistol, shotgun vs long gun, battle rifle vs assault rifle and so on, is only natural, but the truth, as usual, lies somewher…Read more >
Hello to all! I'm new to this site, and just wanted to say hi. I'm an avid gun fan and history buff. I own a 1891/30 Mosin Nagant rifle and enjoy target shooting at a local gun range. I was unemployed in November, 2010 and am currently attending online college for a two year computer degree. I've been married 21 years with two sons ages 13 and 17. I love all thngs gun related, and just came across Gun Wiki recently. Merry Christmas!Read more >
Well folks I'm working hard to update everything. I've started with the Home Page and some of the Help Pages. I redid the categories so there are fewer but they don't all come up in drop down list. I have also started giving out Awards.
If there is someone you think deserves an award let me know.
I am going to start going through every article and get them checked for plagiarism, spam and re-categorized them so they are easier to find. Full cut and pasted Wikipedia articles will be deleted without notice.
I am looking for someone that can create new Gun and Cartridge Infoboxs. Let me know if you want to tackle the job.
If you have any ideas on how we can make Gun Wiki better let me know. SgtMajGW G. GloverSemper Fi 19:21, December 6, 2010 (UTC)… Read more >

I'm working on a historical fiction set in Wyoming in 1881. Other than Colt Pattersons and Colt .45 Peacemakers, what guns and rifles were used in that era? Thanks in advance for any help!!Read more >
Just found this place, think it may be a cool idea. Of course the first place I went was Assult Rifles since this is the most often abused term of modern Media. I probably need eduction about this site, but here is a shot at what I think the intro should say:
An Assault Rifle is a rifle designed for and typically issued to modern military personel. The major featrue required in the design is that the rifle be full-automatic. That means the rifle is designed and manufactured to fire more than one round of ammunition for a single action of the firing trigger. In contrast, a Semi-Automatic weapon is designed and manufactured to fire a single round of ammo with each action of the firing trigger. For instance, a crank opperatied gat…

As we all know, the Amarican Army uses the Colt M4, an offshoot of the ancient M16. while not as abysmal as the M16, It has a long list of problems. some of these include: (skip this if you already know)
- 34% of soldiers reported that their M4's handguards rattle and become excessively hot when firing.
- 20% reported double-feeding.
- 15% reported feeding jams.
- 13% reported that feeding problems were due to magazines.
- 20% were dissatisfied with its ease of maintenance.
- Soldiers requested the following changes:
- 55% requested the firearm be made lighter
- 20% requested a larger magazine
Something I have Omitted from here is that 89% of soldiers reported confidence in the weapon. I got this from the Colt M4 gunpedia page, and wiki is'nt always accurate. The …Read more >
