Found some great 8x10 glass negative pics of the Mare Island Arsenal Bldg #77 at NARA. Wish some of these MGs were still around on the market. I wonder if a lot of this stuff went to Bannerman.

More than likely they were dumped in the ocean. Millions of surplus guns were disposed of in this manner.

I wonder of those Colt "Potato Diggers" are on the regular ground mount attached to the carriage or a non-removeable carriage mount. Great Photos!
I posted a couple photo's of ours here
