BERTHIER RIFLE


BERTHIER RIFLE

This rifle has a bolt action, and gives its bullet a muzzle velocity of 2,071 feet per second. The breech mechanism is of very simple type, and consists of very few parts, none of which are at all liable to get out of action. The magazine is quite separate from and is not attached to the rifle at all; it is simply a metal clip, and in it four cartridges are packed. Of such packages the soldier or sportsman carries as many as desired, each one thus constituting a separate magazine.

To use the magazine it is simply dropped into the breach of the rifle, and the cartridges in it are fed up one by one, as its predecessor is extracted, by means of a spring which forces each cartridge vertically up into the chamber. When the fourth and last cartridge is pushed into the chamber, the magazine falls through automatically, and another can be dropped in its place.

To use the rifle as a single-loader, the magazine is not put in, but the single cartridge is simply inserted in its place behind the chamber, the top of the feeding-up spring for the magazine affording an ample bearing for the whole length of the cartridge.

Farrow, Edward S. American Small Arms; a Veritable Encyclopedia of Knowledge for Sportsmen and Military Men. New York: Bradford, 1904. Print.
