Quote from: steve_holmes_11 on 04 August 2021, 10:29:41 AMNow we know what (nn)L(nn) means, can somebody explain why it is used.We usually adopt classifications that convey something important, or failing that a technical issue.So who 15"L40 as opposed to 15"L50'.Is there some "golden ratio" between gun calibre and length (Clearly would vary with role and construction).

Quote from: Westmarcher on 03 August 2021, 09:59:44 AMp.s. The length of the barrel is usually measured from muzzle to breech. I'm not sure what the measurement parameters are for muzzle loading cannon (i.e., is it the length of the external tube or simply measured from the muzzle to the internal end of the tube?).

Quote from: Techno II on 10 September 2021, 05:15:44 PMThis one's a lot easier. Where does the description 'broom handle' come from on a "broom handled Mauser."Is it just the hand grip ? Which I grant could be considered to be roughly the shape of the very end of a broom handle... or is it something to do with the wooden 'stoclk'.That doesn't look anything like a broom handle....it looks more like a mutant sawn-off cricket bat.Are ALL Mausers 'broom handle' types ?Cheers slightly puzzled of Wales. :-
