That kid sounds like he's had about 10 minutes of familiarization of the 03. Then he put on his uniform and became an "expert" and made his movie.

Saw that goof last week. I always found it a bit odd when "grown men" like that guy put on costumes and make games of war. Maybe it's just me but I could never reconcile the difference between recreation and destruction that reinacting seems to so easily bridge and, at times, I fear that guys like him will one day enter into politics with their fantasy world held safely in tack.

You "old guys" have no respect for the uniform.
He clearly dispelled several myths, he was wearing period correct, probably new repro clothing, yet you guys doubt him?
And for you haters talking about the cut off, doesn't "OFF" mean the rifle is "OFF"?

Yikes. I love it when people cite NO sources for their "conclusions", yet use plenty of emotion when doing so.


(sarcasm for the 1 guy, you know who, who doesn't get it).

Great video, I am looking forward to cruising the comments.
Too bad he put it on the internet, someone will believe him.

He's ready for a job with Red Jacket, the know-it-alls in Louisiana who dished out false milsurp facts nearly every week.

Hes just a kid. Don't be too hard on him. He's just trying to get some street cred by posting his vids. Ive seen worse on YouTube for sure.

No, that should be read in reference to the perspective I expressed in my proceeding comment. Seems like there was a little "old guy" bashing" going on. Hitler had a lot more insanity going on with him than he did passion!

Nah, he'd have to molest kids too.

No, it was a high serial number rifle that belonged to his grandfather, but yes it was in a house fire.
