              The Animator

              Bryan Cox is a retired 3D Graphics Designer residing in England and the author of the animations on this page. He volunteered to tackle this task and has worked patiently with me for a number of years (and many hundreds of hours on his own) to help make these happen. Keep in mind his country has not allowed him to own or possess a functional U.S. Carbine to obtain all of the required measurements and learn the functions necessary for these animations. That he's accomplished this whilst encumbered with these political handicaps speaks highly as to his abilities.


              Playing the Animations
              Read This First!

              Playing these animations requires Windows Media Player. Apple's Quicktime player, used here previously, is no longer supported by Apple, Firefox or Windows 10.

              Download Windows Media Player HERE

              To play the animations in slow motion, right click on the animation and select the Play Speed option. If this option doesn't appear start the animation and try again. Unlike Quicktime, Windows Media Player doesn't include the slow motion option in the controls below the animation or allow for frame by frame viewing in forward or reverse.

              If the animations are not working the issue may be your web browser settings. This is beyond my control, but within your control. In your browser settings look for the option that allows you to select which media player will be used for files ending with the file extension ending with .mov. Select Windows Media Player to play files with the .mov extension.
