Greetings and a 7.92mm info request


#1

Hi,

I’m Mike C from Colbert, WA, USA, and I’m a ‘newby’ to this forum. My interests are Australian military history in particular (I’m an Australian, despite the geographic location!), with emphasis on military equipment.

I’d appreciate some direction to any references detailing the constructional details of various natures of British 7.92mm SAA, as used in the various marks of BESA AFV weapons.

Looking forward to learning much from the posts on this forum.

Mike C
