C3's International Firearms Trivia Quiz
 
The 2 earlier quizzes concentrated heavily on US arms, so I thought I would roam a little further afield for this one. Will leave up for a week. If anyone has questions about a particular answer, please PM me rather than giving answer anyway for those that have not yet taken it. As always, read question carefully. Enjoy- C3

But you know so much. How did this happen? Quiz must be broke I would guess I would sue the site.

I on the other hand got 80% I disagree with automatic rifle it could have been worded better. Are you talking about a machine gun or a auto loading rifle as in the BAR? Or are you talking about the sub mg? It could be taken any way.

Jerry- at work, that line has gotten to be a catchprase for my unit- with us frequently wishing for the follow up WHACK to go with that quote!

Really not trying to make anyone feel dumb- some of the items were ones that surprised the daylights out of me when I first learned them (That was made WHERE? THAT long ago? Jeez!) and the name is Trivia. If I did a quiz that had "What is the bullet diameter of a .357?", that is really not a challenge, and "How many Marlin 39As were built in 1962?" is going to known to no one that did not work for Marlin, so trying to find a balance.

For REAL trivia- did you gents know that a BOLT ACTION rifle was used during the American Civil War? Made by Greener, breech loading underhammer rifle with ellipsoidal rifling- looks like a smoothbore, but bore is an ellipse that rotates as you go up the bore. There are a LOT of weird guns out there.
