I’m a patron of Forgotten Weapons. To be fair, in context, Ian isn’t necessarily a Winchester expert, as his videos cover a wide variety interesting firearms. But I do like his presentation and the fact that I truly believe he really tries to research and present accurate information and I feel is open and welcoming of corrections and additional information (evidenced by his occasional on-screen corrections sometime obviously due to mis-speaking but I believe other times due to corrections after filming). 

The thing I like about these videos is that he does them in an entertaining manner with respect for the viewer and without condescension. Trust me, if you want to see millennial targeted firearm videos spend a few more minutes searching the category on YouTube, but keep your puke bucket handy.

It’s a fun channel and I learn a lot about things that I never knew I didn’t know (there was a video on a Greener harpoon gun – the same one used in Jaws – the other day and it was way cool). 

I contribute because I like it and learn a lot and discover new things to learn about. No other affiliation, but I’m glad somebody is doing their best to make a record of interesting historic firearms.

Mike,
What was the percentage mention in the video?

Think he said 70%.  An elementary presentation, but probably as much as any Millennial would care to know, and much superior, technically, to such discussions of firearms that appear on History Channel. 

Liked his attribution of .30WCF’s popularity to its being an intelligent compromise–not overly powerful, but powerful enough for most purposes.  But he displayed an ignorance of the properties of early smokeless cartridges (all corrosive primed) when he alleged smokeless allowed ’94s to be shot “hundreds of times” without cleaning and without (he implied) damage.  

The 30 WCF comprised just 61.5% of the entire pre-1964 production.  For the first 1,000,000 Model 1894’s manufactured, the 30 WCF accounted for just 50.7%.

Steve,

Please have Ian get in touch with me, as I can provide him with relatively accurate Winchester production numbers.
