Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Flashing Arrow The Secret Weapon That Never Really Was – The Pedersen Device

https://www.nrablog.com/articles/201.../?sf94843693=1

Quote:
There were secret weapons and then there was the Pedersen Device, an unlikely adoption of the Model 1903 rifle by arms designer John D. Pedersen. But the “top secret” designation for this device was because of the misguided belief that it could become a war-changing miniature machine gun – not an unimportant consideration in The War To End All Wars.
Interesting article.

Last year I went to a local gun show and they had a separate room for collectors to show their stuff that was not for sale. There was a lot of interesting things including a guy that had a 1903 Mark I with a Pedersen device. It only took him a few seconds to switch from regular bolt to the PD. I think it could very well have been a game-changer had it actually seen action.

Once again the stupid govt. cancelled something that could have been a game changer.
And it was all about the 'caliber' of the cartridge.
That and fear mongering over wars.

I have a 1903 Mark I. Pederson devices are about as rare as it gets.

I have one, too. I offered the guy $50 for it but he wouldn't sell.

I'm sure if I could get my hands on one to reverse-engineer I could machine some of my own.

It's probable, but a lot of patent drawings don't have dimensions.
