Like I said - no one in the military (referring to US DoD) uses the term "assault" with any weapon type. It's more descriptive of tactical task than anything else. The only possible exception I can think of would be the SMAW (which is a rocket-launcher).
Of course you can find examples of OEM's which use that term (at least those headquartered outside the US)...that has absolutely no implications for the doctrinal terms and informal jargon used by active military personnel.
If you had spent any amount of time with a combat arms unit, I don't think you'd be arguing of this point.
That's my 44. I paid more than I wanted to for it, but it's less than half of what they're going for now. Pre-safety, JM stamped, straight stock. Id had my eye out for the 357 to pair up with my 686. Now I have to get a 629 to go with the 1894 and I'm still out the 357 I was originally looking for.
No, both the second and third from bottom are Marlins. Second up is a model 80DL and the third up is a model 81DL. I grew up on the 81 DL.
It just so happens the very bottom one is a J. C Higgins model 30, a semi-auto with retractable sling! Another one that I grew up on!
Picked this up this morning.
Kind of disappointed in the rate of fire, only about 600 RPM, my other one is pre 1921 and cranks out, oh around, 1500 RPM. Nice addition though and goes well with my BAR, Sturmgewehr, and the Quad-fifty in the front yard.
