The South Carolina Military Museum hosted us once again yesterday. We used our time to disassemble a pair of WWII staples and will be working these images into articles in the future. In the meantime we wanted to remind everyone you can find more images at our Flickr gallery and if you find yourself near Columbia, SC please visit our friends at the South Carolina Military Museum.

All right, I admit it, we have a love of Interwar thrift here at C&Rsenal. While the Polish and Belgian guns were curious, the Yugoslavians may win the gold medal in odd rifle conversions.
Our friend and photographer Nicholas Gore has created a short article on how he achieved the lighting from our recent shoot at the South Carolina Military Museum. Definitely worth a read.
|Rifle||Arisaka 6-5 Rifle||Manufacturer||Taiyuan Arsenal|

The tale of the Shanxi Warlord Yan Xishan is incredible. His attempts to develop a neutral province with a truly modern military force may have ultimately failed, but they did see him govern from 1912 through the warlord period, unification, revolts, the Japanese invasion, and ultimately retreating from the Chinese Civil War. This is a story about one of his guns.
