Okay that's done. I like this movie. One of my favorite oldies. The page just wasn't very satisfactory. I think it's better looking now. --Jcordell 03:09, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Long time since I watched this movie, but do anybody remember what type of rifle the Chinese army (could be the prototype Nationalist Revolutionary Army or just some warlord army) was carrying during the confrontation with the U.S sailors in the city where they end up being humiliated and pelted with rotten vegetables in the street by Chinese civilians? The rifle seems to look like bolt rifle like Arisaka rifle or Mauser. -- Han 24 Sept 2010

You can see the distinctive Mauser flag safety on some of them, best view is when the Chinese troops line up behind and in front of the sailors. The Arisaka had a different design of safety catch. IKD 6 Oct 2010

The deck gun is a US Standard Naval Deck Gun 3-in/23-cal DP (Dual Purpose) Surface/AA. The Gun is typically mounted on the Four Piper Flush Deck Destroyers and on some classes of submarines. It was also the main armament for a WW1 Subchaser class. - Michael Spivey 27 Sept 2010

Adjusting the M1903 sights

That's not the rear sight. It looks like he's adjusting the safety or the magazine cutoff, or possibly cocking the striker. --Maxman (talk) 17:29, 2 April 2016 (EDT)

The rear sight is forward of where he has his right hand, just above his left hand.
