I am seeing Reisings.


It looks like there are some orders being filled out on the deck?

Those are all Reising submachine guns chambered in .45 ACP. They were ordered for the Marines early in the war and were not successful because in order to get the gun into production, the requirement for interchangable parts was dropped. This had the result of turning a reliable, effective gun into one that jammed constantly due to parts being mixed up during field cleaning and rebuilds.
