RKN ''Spooky'' (Rifle, Pattern (of) 1926) by ScrewfaceRomeo RKN ''Spooky'' (Rifle, Pattern (of) 1926) by ScrewfaceRomeo
Developed in the early twenties for police and game wardens by Rouss, Krone and Nigel assc., the RKN Model 3 was first nicknamed "Spooky" by criminals, who had never before encountered semiautomatic rifles in the hands of police, and initially labeled them witchcraft. Cordian Expeditionary Rangers had begun purchasing and using them outside the normal TO&E in 1924, and they were standardized throughout the Expeditionary Corps in 1926 as the RP-1926. The RKN fired the same 6.5x53mm round as the MGP-1925 light machine rifle, but used a proprietary 15 round box magazine. The RKN was very accurate, but suffered in dusty environments and lacked power at range, leading some troopers to discard it in favor of the older RP-1898 bolt rifle.

I love the handle design. It's interesting that you put the barrel on the bottom like modern arms instead of the top, more usual for the time.

With the toggle locking, it's necessary to have it on top.
