Three Makes of Auto-Loading Rifles

Mechanically our three automatic rifles differ. In the Winchester the barrel is rigid, and the breech bolt is opened by what is known technically as the "blow-back” action; the bolt is not locked but is held in place by the inertia of a recoil block backed by a heavy spring. The Remington has a barrel which slides inside a steel jacket. Under pressure of the charge the barrel moves back, still locked to the breech bolt, until the bullet is out of the muzzle, then the barrel comes in contact with a lug which stops it while the bolt continues rearward, opening the breech, ejecting the spent shell, and reloading through the action of a compressed spiral spring.

The Standard is known as a "gas-operated" rifle. In it the breech bolt is actuated by the powder gas which is taken into the power-tube, lying under the barrel, through a small port near the muzzle. No gas can be taken into the power tube until the bullet has passed the port, so the action remains locked until the bullet has cleared the gun. In changing the gun to a hand functioned arm the port is closed and some other slight changes made.

All of these rifles in question have box magazines. The Winchester and Remington can be clip loaded or the cartridges forced into the magazine one at a time. The Standard has a hinged lid at the bottom of the magazine and to reload it you have simply to open the lid and drop the cartridges in, the only care needed, being to see that the bullet end is turned in the right direction. Either of the three guns can readily be used as a single loader.
