Miles is at it again on World War II small arms, with the awesome help of Corey, a very dedicated and knowledgable Reenactor who has taken the time to showcase and discuss the “Light Thirty”, or the Browning 1919A4 light machine gun in use by U.S. Infantrymen in the Second World War. Unfortunately we couldn’t get an actual Class III 1919A4 for the video, but the semi-automatic variant in 7.62x51mm NATO is a true dimensioned representation of what the historical fully automatic 1919A4 would have functioned and looked like. Developing from the water cooled Browning 1917, the 1919A4 is essentially the first highly mobile belt fed light machine gun to see service, being replaced by the M60, and then followed on by the current M240B.
