    Thanks for posting Kirk...I had never seen one and had only vaguely heard of them...Kind of looks "Suomi-ish"...I just have this image of a Hun in his pointy helmet taking pot shots at Snoopy....:):

    I was thinking it looked like the love child of a Garand and an AK! :):

    This is a very neat gun, makes you wonder if its design was used to influence Volkssturmgewehr 1-5. True the internals are very different. And the latter is much more simpler.. But there were 20 years of weapons design between the guns as well as a need for simplicity.

    Love the magazine loading mechanics for the M1915

    That is a cool design, especially for the time! Thanks for sharing.
