It was a pretty good Xmas, my sons physic's professor gave me an original TSMG manual from 1942. Maybe I was good for a change.
Geeesh, I wish my sister would find me something cool like that for Christmas.

Nice artu44 I have seen a picture of a Lewis with a wire stock converted from aircraft to ground gun. I think I remember it having the jacket removed. There is a Lewis in the St Augustine Florida "Old Jail that has what look like a bicycle seat bolted to the barrel. I have not seen it in many years. I might have an old pic I can scan. I throw these out for discussion. Any pics of Lewis guns would be appreciated.
Airplane .303 Lewis issued by italian air force during WWI and WWII haven't the barrel jacket. They experimented the gun didn't need barrel cooling.
Robin, a pic of your Savage Lewis gun would be nice video would be better. I have not shot one in a long time. I forgot to ask if it was 30-06 or 303 and if it was an aircraft or a ground gun. I think there were more 30-06 that 303 Savage guns with the 303 ground gun being the rarest. Anyone have production figures(BSA/Savage, caliber, ground/aircraft, etc)?
