I’m having some trouble figuring out the expression on this soldier’s face…is he disdainful of the photographer? Or just tired of dragging the gun around?
In any case, my experience taking machine guns to the range makes me think that it’s a real shame this kind of mount is obsolete. It’s got a seat for you, a shoulder rest to help control the gun, and nice big wheels for moving everything over lumpy ground. Would make a nice wood shop project for Grandpa’s potato digger, don’t you think?
