|Barnitzke machine gun|
|Place of origin||Nazi Germany|
The Barnitzke machine gun is a machine gun of late World War II German origin. The weapon uses an unusual delayed blowback operation, where during firing the bolt opening is delayed by the rotational inertia of two flywheels, which are driven by a rack and pinion arrangement on the bolt carrier.
