Lewis Definitive Dimensions and Reference Material

Recommended Posts

Fellow Troopers,

 

After a lot of research and negotiation, I managed to secure some hands on time with a real Lewis Gun in the UK.

 

So I took the good camera, tape measures, rulers and even the Vernier Callipers to get as many detailed reference photographs and measurements as I could.

 

We had a break in the weather, so took it outside to a bench for further inspection.

 

It weighs in at 23lbs (Just over 10 1/2 kilos). It's not the sort of thing you'd want to drop. And that's without the magazine drum.

 

All in all, I have 76 very detailed photographs at full resolution (5184 × 3456), which is way too much to post here.

 

But here is the link > Real Lewis Reference Photos

 

I hope you enjoy the photo's. thumbsup.gif
