3. British in World War One

with the Lee-Enfield could fire pretty quickly though the rifle did have a "straight pull" bolt.

The US range qualification with the M1903 Springfield had two "rapid fire" elements compared to four "sustained fire" elements.

A friend of mine (since deceased) was on the USMC rifle marksmanship team for a number of years and fired many different weapons. He had fired the Mannlicher-Carcano and in a bull session once told me that the weapon was fully capable of its its performance in Dallas and that the only limitation would have been the shooter himself.
