    I haven't gotten to fire one of these yet but one of the groups on the firing line at the southern Ohio machine gun shoot had a few ww1 machine guns. The only NFA guns I've ever been interested in personally owning are a Lewis gun or a Maxim. So I get a bit excited when i see them at the shoots. If the shoot had not gotten rained out i would have seen if i could get them to let me shoot one of them. They have a slow rate of fire compared to the other guns there and produce a lot of steam and smoke but they put on a good show. I've love shooting the RPD, Ak-74 and the m-16's that we brought but i would have traded my turn on the line with one of those to shoot a maxim. Hope you like the video.

    Looks like a fun future project. Bet that would go over well at our machine gun shoots

    Whenever i was on the line or video taping other guys from ASA who i was there with. I was watching those guys. They had a lot of mice stuff. One of them shoulder fired a .50BMG which impressed the heck out of me. Those ww1 guns put on a heck of a show and put a nice hurting on the targets we had out there. Turned a washing machine into scrap.

    The Vickers is one of my favorites too...enough that it's the one machine gun I've actually purchased for myself.
