The Vorgrimler Model 1 is a prototype French assault rifle.

HistoryEdit

The Model 1 was designed by Ludwig Vorgrimler in 1948, in a competition to develop small arms chambered for the .30 Carbine cartridge. Vorgrimler's design competed against Theodor Löffler's design, but Löffler's design was preferred, causing all work on Vorgrimler's design to be halted indefinitely; Vorgrimler then dedicated all his work to improving Löffler's design, creating the CEAM Modèle 1950 after multiple revisions.

Design DetailsEdit

The rifle is functionally identical to the StG 45(M).
