The Classic First World War Lewis Gun It was developed in the United States in 1911. At 12 kg it was far lighter than the Vickers Machine-Gun. In 1915 the British Army decided to purchase the gun for use on the Western Front. Another advantage of the Lewis is that six of these guns could be made in the time taken to produce one Vickers gun. Although too heavy for efficient portable use, it became the standard support weapon for the British infantry during the First World War. Also used by home guard units during the second world war.
Model 1914. It comes with a spare magazine in its canvas pouch and some .303 inert rounds. Deactivated with a working action it strips, cocks and dry fires. A rare item and a must have for the first world war collector.
