This Week on Shooting USA – The History of US Service Rifles

The History of US Service Rifles
The History of US Service Rifles

Nashville, TN -(AmmoLand.com)-  The Trapdoor was the first cartridge firing service rifle that was much faster to use than the cap and ball rifles it replaced. But oddly, rapid fire was not the original priority. The Trapdoor was the beginning of the evolution to better and faster cycle service rifles adopted over the next 100 years, that most often put superior firepower in the hands of US troops as they served in two World Wars, Korea, and into Vietnam.

Plus the Smith & Wesson from World War Two that’s now one of History’s Guns.

And a Pro Tip from the Army Marksmanship Unit. More Info…
