  1. In the late Coldwareous period we trained on the later M3A1. No cocking dealie on the side.

    We asked how you cocked it and our instructor told us to stick our finger in the hole in the bolt and pull back.

    At this stage of training, we were VERY skeptical about sticking our fingers in ANYTHING that particular instructor told us to.

  2. I had an uncle who was a WWII Navy Machinist Mate. He stayed in until retirement then got a civil service job in the USAF as a weapons system machinist. He loved the simplicity of the grease gun.
