Ross Rifle MkIII Cartridge: .303 Capacity: 5 rnds Length: 50.6" weight: 9.9 lbs
This disastrous straight pull rifle remains an infamous part of WWI. It brought down politicians, cost soldiers' lives, and was generally a complete failure on the battlefield. But was the Ross Rifle really unfixable? Or did the Canadians drop the gun just when they had it finally working?
