Nickel and Brass Plated Machine Gun Cutaway Model


Functioning models of a .30 Caliber machine gun used in and around WWII as training devices for soldiers. 75% larger than the real thing, and originally painted black and red, they were used in classrooms to teach soldiers how to dismantle and clean their weapons. We had this nickel and brass plated to give it this incredible look. There are some out there that are polished to the aluminum, but this is the only one in the world that is nickel plated. It was a grueling, six month process, but the finished product is a stunning piece of art. Mounted to a custom Stand with custom nickel and brass fittings to match the piece.
