  1. To clarify, guys, I do know that "Volkssturmgewehr" means "Volksturm…gewehr" and not "Volkssturmgewehr". I've explained that myself many times. I was attempting to explain the same thing and stated "people's assault rifle" for that reason and the edit makes it seem as though that's how I was translating it. Not Gamespot's fault – I ramble on for ages and they have to cut it into something watchable 🙂

  2. I find it interesting that, a series dedicated to seeng the representation of old fire arms on videogames doesn't look at the fire arms from a old game like golden eye on the n64, i would really love a video on that, and i know thousends more would too

  3. Can you please make a video on Metal Gear Solid 3's weapons? So many weapons in that game to comment on like the patriot, the EZ gun, Snake's M1911, Ocelot's SAA and Eva's chinese mauser clone.

  4. Please answer my question –
    Which game should I buy immortal fenyx rising or watch dog legion(I have not played any watch dog game before and they both come at same price)

  5. I know you guys probably get a lot of suggestions, but I feel like a video about the new guns in Hunt Showdown would be interesting, especially since I want to hear Jonathan's opinion about the Berthier. And maybe even the C96 Akimbo reload.

  6. Please show him the Lee Einfeld with the 5 round magazine, and the Bren gun from CoD Vanguard. The very first one shown by the Australian character……is just despicable.

  7. The krag's advantage is that it's easier to load with frostbitten fingers. There is no need for fumbling with the bullets or a clip to guide them correctly into the gun. You can just have the bullets loose in the palm of your hand and let them roll into the internal magazine, there is no need to use your fingers to load it.

  8. Correct me if i'm wrong, but i thoight the volkssturmgewehr was gas-delayed, rather than straight blowback?

    Or perhaps he meant it was straight blowback, but in the sense that the weapon's action pushes the bolt back straight(without any locking doohickery), but does indeed have a delaying mechanism?

  9. I've fired a replica of the Krag before! I went to a local shooting range that lets you pay 20 kr. for a box of ammunition and do some target shooting, and they were hosting an event where you could fire a bunch of replicas from wars past (Not to mention all you get to shoot normally is a Makarov or Karabiner 98 replica). Super fun, but now I wonder how my younger self didn't have an eternally sore shoulder.

  10. It's kind of interesting to see his take on a lot more of the obscured weapons of the WW2 era, rather than going through the same humdrum of criticizing the design of the MP40, STG-44 or Thompson for instance.

  11. Technically, the Volkssturm Gewehr (or MP507) is gas delayed, but in practice, it turns out to be more of a gas buffering system, allowing for weaker recoil springs to be used. It does still reduce the required reciprocating mass by 100g (1.4 instead of 1.5kg).
