It's 1700 hrs here in Sam and my wonderful AZ (mt time). Wife is fixing dinner, were gona have left over Thanksgiving stuff, after skiping it yesteray. So the deal is. I was thinking, i usually get back on in 4 or 5 hrs. and thought it would be fun to throw up a quick trivia question. I was reading a realativly new "Blue Jackets Manuel" and surprised by this fact, and have only one request for a rule. This will depend on our honesty. Guesses are ok, but no fair jumping into search engines, and getting it easy, either your surprised as i was or you know it. For what it's worth i knew the fact but not that it was the only one.. SORRY FOR THE RAMBLING.. Here's the big question; Since WWII the militray has had only one weapons system with Left hand rifling. Believe it or not (acording to the blue jackets manuel) of all the pistols, revolvers, rifles, machine guns, cannons, AA, ship batterys up to the 16" babys that will throw a small car 20 miles, only one of these has left hand rifling.
Winner gets a... winner don't get shit, except all our respect, and my appologies for rambling... Step up and do it.. will be back in 3-4 hrs.

there are two U.S. military weapons platforms that used/use the Left Hand twist rifling.

1. M1911/A1 .45 ACP
2. M1917 Enfield .30-06 (which was also two groove rifling)
