Ross Rifle MK III
The Ross rifle was a long, heavy rifle which made it difficult to carry. When the Canadian designed and made Ross Rifle was fired rapidly, it often jammed on the soldiers.
"It was used by most Canadian forces from the start of the war until mid-1916, when it was replaced with the British-made Lee-Enfield. The Ross was a fine shooting rifle but not robust enough for the trenches and the technical deficiencies of mass-produced British ammunition." -source:"WarMuseum.ca - Objects and Photos of the First World War - Weapons and Ammunition".
