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. Without looking at the link Who knows what the wind up Bren is?

  2. A change lever for people with no thumbs?
  3. Think it's a Madsen Machine Gun (7.92mm) although the barrel looks a little short.

    IIRC these date from the 30/40's. Whos is the modern looking chap using it???


  4. It would appear so-


    Used by Military Police in Rio de Janiero State apparently
  5. Yup, the Brazilians still use Madsens for some reason.
  6. It's been on the "weapon spotters" thread before.
