(aka "Maxim Gun")
When we play guns around here, we play hard.
This is a MG08/15, a water-cooled 8mm squad machine gun; the terror of the killing fields in 1917.
This one is being brought back to life, & today was probably the first time that it has been fired in 75 years.
Unfortunately, we could get it to “gun”, but not “machine”. Consequently, it is the biggest, heaviest, single shot rifle you’ve ever seen.
Work continues, updates as progress is achieved.
But wow, watta gun.
