If you can get the animation to work it's VERY informative. The original QuickTime versions were totally awesome in that you could "play" them manually forwards and backwards by means of a slider at your own speed so you really see how things work. But unfortunately, unless you saved them to use with your QT viewer offline, they're gone.

Note that I responded to making the M1 RIFLE an automatic, not the carbine.
