    This is his earlier, longer video on the Vickers – Vickers Heavy Machine Gun

  2. STW says:

    I knew a guy north of Pittsburgh who when he was 13 took a demilled Vickers and hand fabricated parts to get it working again. The police showed up while he was still adjusting the cyclic rate and suggested he and his friends step away…..

    • California Southpaw says:

      He should have spun it around and then suggested that the popo step away…

    I have fired a few Maxims from which the Vicker’s evolved and I will have to say these are some of the finest machineguns I have ever experienced.

    having that damned handle rack me in the knuckle each time looks like it would really get old quick.

    Ian’s site http://www.forgottenweapons.com/ is a wealth of videos like this on stuff you never knew existed.

    240 B/G all day long. But I dig the history.

    Damn I wish I could afford that.

    UK had the Vickers.
    The Hun had the MG-08.
    The Russians called theirs the Maxim which all the others were.
    The interchangeability of parts was over … um? My brain says 75% but I don’t trust it like I use to.
