    in my inexperienced opinion it looks like a modded .50 BAR with a really long (supressed?) barrel...

    No, it really is a Lahti. There are other pics of him, too, one with it sticking out the bed of his truck.

    looks to me as something from a 3rd world country. Used for AA. One guy would keep the gun on his back, with the shoulder straps, whlie the other would fire it at aircraft.
    Any older vets out there with an idea??

    It. Is. A. Bloody. Fricken. Lahti.

    It's just a bigass anti material rifle.

    FWIW, anyone with a copy of Unintended Consequences can see an advertisement from the late 60s offering Lahtis for sale for $129.95.

    Also, those aren't shoulder straps, they're skids.

    It was designed to be used in the snow, hence the skis. You want really scary? They modified a few of these things to full auto after they were obsolete as an AT weapon. Try firing that at the loca range.

    Just kidding, making fun of the '***** who can't read what kfranz posted.
