ARTV Preview: 101st Airborne in Operation Market Garden; Colt King Cobra; Nambu Type 3 Machine Gun

posted on February 5, 2020

This week on on American Rifleman TV, we go back to the European Western Front in World War 2. Watch a preview of tonight's show here. In September 1944, British and U.S. airborne infantry units attempted to secure bridgeheads in Holland during Operation Market Garden. If they succeeded, Allied armor would be able to push over the Rhine River and into Germany before Christmas. Our late friend Don Burgett, a paratrooper of the 506th Parachute Infantry Division, 101st Airborne recounts fighting with German resistance during the operation. 


On "Rifleman Review" Brian Sheets goes over the Colt King Cobra revolver.


"I Have This Old Gun" takes a look at the Japanese Nambu Type 3 heavy machine gun, predecessor to the infamous Type 92 "Woodpecker".
