RD DIGEST vol.9: Webley Mars automatic pistol

General / 31 July 2020

Some time ago we had gained cool experience with modeling of this rare antic piece.
The most difficult thing was to reproduce the work of the cartridge feed mechanism, which is not arranged like in most weapons:



The point is that a special grip pulls the cartridge out of the magazine back when the bolt is released, and feeds it forward when it is returned. This allowed the developers to significantly lengthen the barrel with the same pistol dimensions.
