The process of how each individual piece came about is such a simple process, fixing one issue caused another, then another...yet incredible considering how nice this piece of improvising looks taking place in 1906... Amazing.

I wonder how many people got hurt before they put all of those safety devices on there? I have this mental picture of a dude with bandages wrapped around his head welding in a rail.

Inventors, amazing us for years.

To be fair these guys were good but still they held them selves back*** Now if you want to see balls to the wall Inventing you have to go down under to New Zealand.
Those rascals were not happy till they invented a fully Automatic Rifle out of a bolt action Rifle

They did a conversion back in I think the 20 it was called a Peterson device take a look at that .

Reportedly, all the examples were destroyed for parts. It's a semi auto pistol caliber conversion for the Springfield. Fires from stick mags.
