Fullauto, that was just a question in general. Im curious, it looks very similar to both a G3 and an MP5. Maybe the intermediate cartridge weapon in the family?

I know what it is, but I had to look it up to find out so I won't say what it is, very very very hard and good question.

Right you are my friend!! Their first business was called "Volcanic Repeating Arms", they later sold it to the founder of Winchester.

Dan Wesson also made the first design for the lever rifle. He later sold it to Tyler Henry while they were both working for Colt.

Lol. Yeah it isn't necessarily classified as a firearm and it is a bit obscure. I must admit I'm an admirer. I want one.

The first successful lever action repeating rifle was the Spencer. This action was not based on a small weak handgun action. The Spencer was patented in 1860 5 years after the S&W design. But it was a rifle designed for cased and primed rifle ammo.

Ok, time for a military trivia question. During General Shermans famous March to the Sea, the march began and ended in which two Georgia cities? Hint: At the end of the march General Sherman wired President Lincoln proclaiming one city as a Christmas present.
