Hi,
I was looking for some information on a recent purchase. It is a mini gun turret given to Captain A.S. Wotherspoon by the Civilian Naval Inspectors at the Naval Ordnance Plant in Center Line . Michigan . It is a pair of .22 cal guns that actually fired. I am guessing it is a one off piece made at the plant for Captain Wotherspoon. Captain Wotherspoon commanded the USS Louisville ( CA 28 ) in July 1943. The Mini Guns are in original condition. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Steve
