So guys, it's been about a three months since our last update but I assure you we have been re-vamping old models, and working on new stuff. The reason we have been dead was that everyone was caught up in their own lives. Another reason why we were dead, was the fact that our webmaster, G-Gnome, was kidnapped but he is now safely back in the United States thanks to the whole WTC team rescuing him. Just playing with you guys.

This weapon is the French MAS36. It fired a 7.5mm cartridge and held only five rounds. Adopted in 1936 it was known to be the last bolt action service rifle to be adopted for military use anywhere. It had a modified Mauser action which was so arranged that the bolt handle had to be angled forward quite sharply.

This is the MAS38 sub-machine gun produced by the French. It fired a 7.65mm cartridge and held thirty-two rounds in a box magazine. Although it was a sound enough weapon well in advance of its period, it was very complicated. Its cartridge was accurate but it was not very powerful. Germans captured enough MAS38s in 1940 to issue them to their garrison force stationed in France, and was the only other army to use it.

The MP41 (Machine Pistol 41) is a modified version of the MP40. The MP40 is a follow-on to the MP38. The MP 38 was the first machine pistol issued to the German army since WW1. The MP40 and MP40/I were cost reduced versions of the MP38. The MP40s were made by a number of firms and subcontractors from 1940 to 1944. The MP41 was credited to Schmeisser the plant manager at Haenl. For that reason, anything that looked like an MP41 has been called a Schmeisser. The Mp41 fires a 9mm bullet.

This is the French FM 24/29 light machine gun. It fired a 7.5mm cartridge and had a twenty-five round box magazine. This was the standard light machine gun for much of the French army in 1939. It had two triggers, one for automatic fire and the other for single shots. A special variant of the Model 24/29 was produced, initially for use in the Maginot Line defenses but eventually also for tanks and other AFVs.

This is the Owen submachine gun produced by the Australian army. It fires a 9mm cartridge and has a thirty-three round box magazine. It is can easily recognized by its magazine, which points vertically upwards over the tubular gun body. The top-mounted disadvantage for the firer as the magazine position meant that the sights had to be off-set to the right side of the body, an awkward arrangement but one that mattered little once the weapon was used in action for the Owen was almost always fired from the hip.
