I was tired when I watched it it was like one in the morning and I was still trying to study. I think the magazine was curved and loaded on the side of the weapon. it looked longer than the M1 or at least the barrel stuck much farther out from the stock than the M1. It was automatic I think.

Ok, the weapon you are referring to is the M1941 Johnson:

The M1941 Johnson was used by the Marine Raiders and the Para-Marines at the beginning of World War II and served as their main semi-auto rifle until adoption of the M1 Garand in late 1942.
It fired a .30-06 round while in U.S. service, but was sold abroad chambered for the 7mm.

And it fired magic bullets.

Topic: Never knew


I bet once this weapon was out to have fun the japs never knew what hit them. They must have been destroyed. If every soldier had this some areas miht have been easier to clear.

Well, just imagine what the polish or the Dutch soldiers felt when they clashed against german troops armed with Mauser 98k, MP-40 and MG-34 lmgs... Well, no more chatty-chat, I think that the best guns of WWII are:
1) Pistol: The Colt 1911 or the Webley revolver.
2) SMG: PPSH-41 gun.
3) Rifle: The Enfield or maybe the Mosin-Nagant (because of its dependability in the worst conditions).
4) LMG: MG-42
5) HMG: Browning HB .50 cal
