So, do you know how to keep your 1915 Chauchat LMG running in case of German poison gas attack? What is the proper ammo loadout for your assistant gunner? Well, I hope you’ve found us here at Forgotten Weapons before you have to go into action, because we’ve got a copy of not one, but three original US manuals for the 1915 Chauchat. They’re all posted on our Original Manuals page – take a look! In addition to telling you load up your buddy with 480 rounds and liberally coat the internals with Russian oil in case of chlorine attack, you’ll find a good description of how the gun works (or doesn’t), how to take care of it (and I don’t mean throwing it away and finding a BAR), and how to drill and fight with it (in a WWI trench, to be specific).
