The famous "Ma Deuce" .50 caliber machine gun was widely used by US forces from World War II through Viet Nam, and even saw action in the Gulf War in the early 1990s. It is still widely used by various armed forces around the world. For any World War II or firearms historian, this is a one of our favorite pieces. It captures a great piece of history right in the palm of your hands. This desktop replica swivels on its own adjustable tripod and comes with separate belt of ammo that is inserted in the chamber. Bolt and trigger action are non-functional.
