So I’m looking at the Hotchkiss and hmmmmmm... I’m thinking.
A 32” barrel. That’s great.
1.5” thick barrel That’s great.
What’s better than a 32” heavy barrel?
Nothing. But, wouldn’t it be nice to have a scope, so you could really see the ballistic performance out of that barrel?
The side of the receiver is already drilled and tapped for anti aircraft sights that I’ll never find, so scope mount here we go.
