Object of Desire: Factory Cut-Away Ma-Duece

    (Gawking) Now that my jaw has been picked up from the floor, I cannot help but appreciate the photos of a cut-away M2 .50 Machine Gun. Photographed by RangeHot.com, the M2 in question is a factory spliced receiver used to train armorers of the .50 BMG.


    I had the opportunity to photograph a pretty rare .50 Browning Machine Gun, it is a factory cut away used as a training tool for armorers of the famed Ma Deuce.

    I was not able to get an exact data on this particular M2 training tool but I was told it was from around the 50s and was used as a training tool for many years before it made it’s way into a private collection.
