CandRsenal’s In-Depth Look At WWI Guns, on YouTube

    It’s a good time to be into firearms history. Between Forgotten Weapons, Vickers Tactical, and other great series, what more could the gun history nerd ask for? Well, Othais of CandRsenal has started a YouTube channel that answers that question, covering in medium-length videos individual rifles and other arms of the period from 1870-1960. The first two episodes, covering the 1886 Lebel and the Berthier, are delivered in a format very well-suited to viewers just getting into firearms, but I still learned quite a bit:

    I definitely look forward to seeing more of Othais’s great videos and excellent animation!
