FRENCH INFANTRY 1917-1918,
123e Regiment of Infantry,
Infantry Captain (1pc) US$40
The Chauchat machine rifle was one of the first light,
automatic rifle caliber weapons designed to be carried and fired by a single operator and an assistant,
without a heavy tripod or a team of gunners.
It set a precedent for several subsequent 20th century firearm projects,
being a portable yet full power automatic weapon built inexpensively and in very large numbers.
The Chauchat combined a pistol grip, an in-line stock,
a detachable magazine, and a selective fire capability in a compact
package of manageable weight (20 pounds) for a single soldier.
Furthermore, it could be routinely fired from the hip and while walking (marching fire).
