WW2 RAF-Royal Air Force Swift Training Rifle In Case
The Swift Training Rifle was a rifle shooting training device made in Great Britain during the Second World War.1 This rifle did not actually fire a cartridge, but shot out a forked probe that punctured a paper target barely an inch from the "muzzle". The system illustrated, to a recruit or trainee, the required sight picture and the correct hold of the rifle as well as the correct operation of the action, the finesse of trigger pull, and the importance of prevention of cant of the rifle.
The device, in a transit case, was sold mainly to the Royal Air Force to train recruits.
