The Lewis Gun

Recommended Posts

I try to watch every episode of C&Rasenal.com. Othias, the host, goes very deeply into the history of all these old guns and Mae (I hope I am not butchering their names) does most of the shooting. My kind of girl!

Sedalia Dave is right.

Her grin was the first thing I noticed!

Lots of $$$$ for ammo! It does look like a whole bunch of fun though! ;)

Aw, you can find some ammo. What caliber? Lewis guns were made in .30-06, .303 Britich, and I don't know what else.

A knock off was made by the Japanese, in 7.7mm, which was their nomenclature for the .303 British.

I believe 7.62x54R also.

Fun until you had to change drum out while flying in 1917 at 10k feet in you Sopwith Camel with Jerry around in his Albatross or Fokker.

Thanks LL

 

There were lots of good cutaway action views by vbbsmyt. Especially liked the Browning 1895 "Potato Digger" and 1874 Gatling guns
