And yes- the Colt Model 1903 .32 Smokeless Rimless was issued. In addition to certain used by OSS personnel, it was the official General Officer's sidearm. George Patton notwithstanding, when you made Brigader, you were issued a .32 with holster and belt, pistol engraved with our name. NRA museum in Fairfax has Eisenhower and MacAthur's .32s on display.

G'night kids- play nice, keep the TV down.
Ahhh, duh on #1 oh well guess im just tired hehe

The 1903A2 was a stockless action and barrel. It was mounted in a block that could be inserted into an artillery piece, and used as a subcaliber training device.

Yep, Vampir, mounted on the Stg44- although the weight is hardly "man portable". At the same time the US M3 carbine was being fielded- an M1 Carbine, infrared scope. Used in 1945, invasion of Okinawa.

The first FIREARM was a matchlock musket, carried by members of the Public Guard, established in May, 1618, Jamestown VA. That organization still exists today-

First RIFLE may have been the 1792 Contract Rifle- although rifles were (rarely) used earlier than that.


But a darned good question!
