    Colorized. Love the hairdo and dresses the women are wearing. Old school cool.

    SLAM37, thanks for posting that (entertaining to watch).

    Required accuracy @ 15 yards: all seven rounds within a four inch circle & four of which, must be within a three inch circle.

    Those women machinists had their hands in that cutting oil all day long. Guess they didn’t need any skin moisturizer back then

    WW2 era manufacturers:
    Remington Rand (900,000) - the typewriter people; not the gun people
    Colt (400,000) - the gun people
    Ithaca Gun Company (400,000) - the shotgun people
    Union Switch & Signal (50,000) - the train people
    Singer (500) - more rare; collector value

    Such a fantastic film. Thank you for sharing! After watching that, how can your appreciation for JMB's genius creation not increase tenfold!

    Good video. I liked the way they “oiled” the gun before packing it by dunking it in a tank of oil. :roflmaro:
