John Hutchins’ book is the definitive treatise on the machine gun as used by British forces from 1870-2015.
Some American troops fought with guns one would expect in the multi-national mission to Peking, such as the Krag-Jorgensen. But other guns were used during the “Boxer Rebellion” that were a little more unusual, including Gatlings, M1895 Colt machine guns and the short-lived Lee Navy straight pull rifle in .236.
On this week's episode of American Rifleman TV, we continue with the top 10 machine guns of all time, with the Gatling and Bren Gun. We'll also take a look at the CrossBreed Chest Rig Holster along with the British Baker Rifle.
