Default Breda Model 30--probably the worst automatic weapon every made.

Yes, probably worse than even the .30-06 versions of the Chauchat (and Ian did a video of the 8x50mm Lebel version, which worked reasonably well for what for World War I standards was probably the cheapest automatic weapon made in the conflict and probably one of the the cheapest machine guns ever made).

The Model 30 had even more weird features and most of them didn't work well.

Sounds like a serious dud

Great video though. I have zero interest in this sort of weapon but the video held my attention. I actually enjoyed learning about it

Not that much impressive but good video though.
