Do you know your military arms?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Here is a section of a barrel (repro) of a famous firearm. A cyberpint to the one who guesses correctly :D


    To give an idea of scale, the total barrel diameter is 23mm or approx 0.92". Historical hints to follow if you get stuck!
  2. Not too sure if its a Honeydew or Cantaloupe. Bit like the old Ask the Family questions!
  3. Is it a Martini-Henry? Introduced, if memory serves, in 1807 (but don't nail me on that one!).

  4. Baker rifle.
  5. Nope, not Martini-Henry

    1807? The Brits would have ruled the world if they had them in 1807 :lol: The Martini-Henry was officially selected in 1869 to succeed the Snider rifle.
  6. A Cyberpint to the Brewmeister!
  7. Cheers Croque! Your very good health.
  8. I thought it was a barnacle!
