This is the beginning of the smokeless revolution, the gun that changes military repeaters for generations and gives us the first taste of the truly modern cartridge. Sadly, the “Lebel” rifle just wasn’t as advanced as its cartridge and would give a middling performance over its rather long service life.
All right, we’ve had a little trouble with SEO and especially with word of mouth thanks to the unspellable “C&Rsenal.”
However, whenever we consider a name change people get upset.
So we’re splitting the difference. From now on the VIDEO series in which we explore one gun at a time is going to be known as Primer.
Otherwise nothing has changed. Carry on.
