Tonight on American Rifleman TV: Americans in World War I—Part 2; Mossberg Shockwave

posted on February 21, 2018
Last week, American Rifleman TV began an eight-part series—"Americans in World War I—Over There!“ As with the previous episode and the episodes to come, we will walk the ground where a generation of Americans fought and died. We will tell you some of their stories, their heroism and sacrifice, and we will show you the guns that were used. We will put them in context, using our panel of historians, rare archival film, photos of the men, and live fire footage of the guns.



This week, Part 2 will cover "An American Army," and how when America declared war on Germany in 1917, U.S. forces were not prepared for what lay ahead. However, the rapid mobilization of U.S. troops deployed in France was a remarkable accomplishment with forces expanding from 200,000 men to 2 million in just over a year and a half. Armed with the Model 1903 Springfield Rifle and the Model 1911 Colt Pistol, millions of American men were sent to the trenches in France until the end of the war in November 1918.





In "Rifleman Review" we look at the Mossberg Shockwave in 12 gauge; and the Interarms FEG APK Pistol is our "I Have This Old Gun."
