This 1941 Johnson rifle gives way to shoot 30-06 without undue recoil. It does require a steady stance to avoid short-stroking. Loading the rotary magazine with two stripper clips is interesting, a bit like Enfield but quicker thanks to rimless ammo. The rear sight is an aperture with range-adjusting slider like the later FN49. The balance is definitely better than M1 Garand, so even a lightly built 15 year old girl can hold it off-hand easily.
