This automatic rifle and pistol combined shoots cartridges loaded with Walsrode smokeless powder. It requires a .31 caliber full metal patch or mushroom bullet, and has an effective range of 300 yards. The magazine holds eight cartridges. The only operation necessary is to throw back the bolt the first time, which cocks and loads the arm. After this the arm works automatically. The recoil of the first cartridge unloads, cocks, and loads the arm, and as fast or slow as the trigger is pulled the arm is discharged. Owing to its light weight and small size, it makes both an excellent pistol as well as a first-class rifle for game as large as deer.
