Mid 20th Century Browning Training Gun, USA


Of enormous proportions, these rifles were made as “training guns“ as demonstrators for troops. Rather than showing individuals how the rifle worked they were able to demonstrate the mechanism (assembling, disassembling, cleaning, firing, etc) of the rifle to entire halls of troops, hence the cutaway sections which show the recoil system, the bolt and the cartridge chamber.

This particular model is a Browning model 1919 A6 calibre .30 machine gun which was widely used during the 20th century, especially during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The M1919 saw service as a light infantry, coaxial, mounted, aircraft, and anti-aircraft machine gun by the U.S. and many other countries. Designed by the Office of Naval Research's Special Devices Center, this cutaway measures a massive 197cm in overall length, and demonstrates the inner workings of the Browning Model 1919A6 Machine Gun. The base bears an ID plate for the National Guard.

Height: 63 cm
Width: 197 cm
Depth: 30 cm
