Great vid on the mechanics, I love it

I like these old army films, there is one on youtube about the M1 Garand and how to shoot with a sling. It's got a more propaganda-type feel to it.

I love the nice retro in this video. Rifles like that are why UPS is headed to my abode today with an A1 furniture set.

Sweet video. I learned a lot. What is staking the carrier key as mentioned above?

Staking the carrier key is the process of crimping some of the metal from the bolt carrier key into the two bolts that mount it to the bolt carrier to keep them from coming loose.

I bet the guy doing the demo is looking for his hearing aid right about now.

Whenever I watch videos like this, with the cut-away models and stuff, I'm just amazed at people like Stoner and Garand, who can somehow conceive of how all these different parts can fit together and perform the functions they do. It's true genius that goes into firearm design.
