Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

M41 Johnson rifle ???

#1 Post by oddball6 » Mon Feb 18, 2019 10:24 pm

Gents there is currently a program on one of the networks the examines the effect their military had on them in later life. The presidents discussed . were Eisenhower, JFK,Gerald Ford,RMN, GHW Bush,
Interspersed was much . archival footage , much of it new to me.
in one of the film clips was a 3 second shot taken from the right rear shoulder of a GI firing what sure looked like an M41 Johnson rifle.( Not a LMG)

Anybody tape it or see it ? If it is it will be the first time I have seen photographic evidence of one of these in the field

What is the name of the series or program?

This reading is interesting: WW2 Re-Think: Was there a Way to Get American Infantry Squads a Sustained-Fire Light Machine Gun like the Germans Had? How About Detachable Magazine and Stripper Clip-Fed Rifles? By Mike Sparks

I 'believe' . it is titled Presidents at War . Seems fairly balanced over all Interesting reading you have suggested . Many many collectors have told me in passing that the Mod.41 was produced in about 70,000 units. I think the stated figure of 20,000 is more realistic .

When were you in the crotch?
