Tonight on American Rifleman TV: Over There! "No Finer Troops"; Remington RP45; the Gewehr 98 Rifle

This week, ARTV continues its series on the men and guns of World War I by looking at Americans who didn't serve directly under Gen. John J. Pershing but rather with the British. Two American divisions, the 27th and the 30th, fought side-by-side with our British and Australian allies and were entirely equipped with British arms. Australian General John Monash said he had commanded "no finer troops." Instead of the 1903 Springfield or the Model 1917 rifle, these soldiers went into battle with the Short, Magazine Lee-Enfield in .303 British, the Lewis Light Machine Gun and the Vickers Machine Gun. You can see a preview of tonight's show here

Also, this week in “Rifleman Review,” Executive Editor Joe Kurtenbach covers the Remington RP45 pistol.

Finally, “I Have This Old Gun” covers the rifle used by the Kaiser's men during World War I—the Mauser Gewehr 98 rifle. 

Watch a preview here, and for more American Rifleman TV, tune in Wednesday nights on the Outdoor Channel.

Favorite Firearms: A Mystery Colt Single Action Army

Perusing an expired paper-edition Gun List several years ago, I came across an ad for this old 1880-1881 Colt Single Action Army. Can’t remember what I paid, but at that time, it was too cheap to believe it was still for sale.
