Restored P-51D Mustang with Real Browning M2 .50cal Machine Guns

    Ever since I was a kid I’ve been fascinated with WWII warbirds, my favorite being the P-51 Mustang. The North American P-51 Mustangs were armed with six .50 caliber M2 Browning machine guns, a good amount of firepower for the day. If you’ve been to airshows around the US I’m sure you’ve seen a P-51 at least once, but there’s something different about Ron Fagen’s P-51 Mustang named Twilight Tear. His actually has six functioning M2 Browning machine guns, kind of, read on.


    Fagen obtained the proper licenses needed from the ATF, built a special range and tested the M2 Brownings out to 75 yards. Unfortunately Fagen can’t actually fly his P-51 with the M2 Brownings in place, the ATF spoiled that fun. He uses aluminum copies when he flies Twilight Tear. Check out the six M2 Browning machine guns in action below.
