I haven't gotten to fire one of these yet but one of the groups on the firing line at the southern Ohio machine gun shoot had a few ww1 machine guns. The only NFA guns I've ever been interested in personally owning are a Lewis gun or a Maxim. So I get a bit excited when i see them at the shoots. If the shoot had not gotten rained out i would have seen if i could get them to let me shoot one of them. They have a slow rate of fire compared to the other guns there and produce a lot of steam and smoke but they put on a good show. I've love shooting the RPD, Ak-74 and the m-16's that we brought but i would have traded my turn on the line with one of those to shoot a maxim. Hope you like the video.
