Hello everyone,
I saw this and found it really interesting so I thought I'd share it here. The video is about the VG 1-5 volksturm rifle, from the youtube channel Forgotten Weapons, if you've got 10 minutes I'd recommend having a look:

Enjoy!

Very awesome! I had no idea that the whole thing recoiled until I saw the video. Great photo, where did you go to get your hands on the rifle?

Defence Academy isn't it?

I'm normally not terribly impressed by these sorts of videos but... really well done, nice comparisons and objective.

Cracking stuff.
