# GEN4 (?) Edit
# GEN3

Bolt forward, selector on "SEMI".

This combination would be typical after the last round is fired, providing the shooter does not realize that the magazine is empty. Since there is no hold open, the bolt will fly forward when the trigger is pulled. The resulting "thud" is a good signal to change magazines or transition to the pistol!

The inserted mag gives this shot an interesting quality. What other value it adds I don't know!

S #4 Edit
General purpose setting of 100 meters.

(Note to reader: I was going to delete this photo in favor of S #5 because it just somehow felt "wrong". But at the last minute I realized that's because I shoot from the other side! (85% of the time, anyway.)

MH #1 Edit
Magazine housing area. The great majority of markings on this weapon will be found on the upper and lower surfaces of this receiver protrusion.

In addtion to providing support and retention of the magazine, the housing also locates the ejector in it's rearward extention.

Underside of the magazine housing area.

Possibly the most interesting feature of this shot is the wear in the finish.
