Does this count? I super-detailed a 1/6th scale kit. The only real inaccuracy is the color of the cradle and bipod. They should be black, but I was using a restored one as reference and it was painted OD green. The ladder sight can be raised and the peep sight itself slides up and down on the ladder. The windage and elevation knobs on the cradle are fully functional and move the gun up/down and right/left. I used fine machine screws for the mechanisms. The locking pins on the chains can be pulled out to remove the gun from the cradle. The grips are real wood.

The strap to hold the bipod legs when folded is made from leather and has a working roller buckle. The "wooden" ammo box was scratch built and has a hinged lid and spring-loaded release. It can be lifted out of the cradle. The handle is also leather. The water can is scratch built and has a real rubber hose. I have other photos of the construction if anyone is interested.

HEY! I almost missed this. I never look at the photos. How do you cross reference this to the gun guys?

Here is my good friend with his BAR. He carried one in the 30th Div in WWII.

Did someone say BAR? By the way, if it fires fast, then it's a machine gun.

Here's a photo from my collection of training in the states during WWI. The machine gun is the British Vickers- but I can't figure this one out. It doesn't have the fluted barrel jacket usually seen with the Vickers. Perhaps someone can shed some light on this?

Nice pics, I'll have to watch this section.

Here is one my wife found in an antique store labled Yanceyville, NC 1947. Not your typical MG pic.

New Romantic:

Yes. The MG is a Colt Model of 1915 in .30 caliber. It is a licensed built version of the Vickers and was used by US Forces through WW1, being replaced by the M1917 Browning.

I just happened to have handy another pic of the Colt Model of 1915. Seen below are cavalrymen from the 8th Machine Gun Troop in 1916. Given the arid conditions, my guess would be that the photo was taken at Fort Bliss near El Paso, TX. Note that most of the troopers are wearing Colt M1911 .45 pistols in Model of 1912 holsters, although the trooper in the foreground may be wearing a M1916 holster since I don't see the swivel device. That's a lot of Colts in one picture!

I liked your pic, although we probably should be discussing Machine Guns in the Firearms Forum.

Regards,
Charlie Flick

I agree with you again Charlie. There are some great pics and I could have missed them. Is there a way to cross reference them to the firearms section?
