Scratch built machine gun.

July 16, 2019 · in Uncategorized · 10 · 2.3K

This is a scratch built model of a Lanchester machine gun issued to the Royal Navy during WW2 because the army didn’t want it. It was made from quality materials and proved better than the Bren gun.It’s eleven inches long and made from wood.
