And the members of the Orange Free state had the advantage, so rather than level the field the British cut them off from the Mauser. And then we get into it with Spain, We got kicked in all 7 knees with our 30/40 crag, and to think; we could have had a Mauser.

Mauser? Now that man knew how to build a rifle, he did not place the lugs in the rear, he placed them up front. I say them because he used two lugs 'upfront', the 30/40 had one lug. Springfield did not use two lugs because they decided it only needed one. In the old days manufacturers of rifle knew how difficult it was to build a rifle with two lugs.
