be

1)

In the com:se of 30 seconds the duplicate-mechanism can

inserted

by

gm1ner .

2)

The change may be performed by the gunner in lying posi-

tion, which means that it is not necessary to withdraw the weapon

from

the line of fire, when the

chan~e is to

be

done .

3) The duplicate - mechanism

being always curried in the 1st

line

together with the weapon, its efficiency i s more than doub-

led in that one barrol is cooled while the other is shooting.

If

during very forced shooting it should occur that the

firing stops in consequence of the defectiveness of' either the cartriclge Ol' the mechtmism, the gunner will now always bo able to
