Wpn function test in the WHT

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. Is it in or not?

    It isn't detailed in the test but when the wpn is split for cleaning you do the function test.

    So should it be done or not?

  2. in the wht for the sa80 rifle you carry out the functions test, for the 9mm pistol you carry out two small tests
  3. Yes, it is in.
  4. My understanding is that the function test is part of the sequence for stripping and cleaning. I always use that part of the WHT to test the function test. Rightly or wrongly I always instruct the testee to; 'assemble the weapon and remember to perform the function test.'
  5. From test 2 (Stripping, cleaning & assembling) of the Rifle WHT, which is in AOSP Vol 1:

    "Order the soldier to assemble the Rifle/LSW and test the function of the weapon."

    Hope this clears this up!!! :D
