That's the Boer "Pom Pom " that Kipling talks about in the Boer war.
Reading those old books about the Boer war, India, and the Sudan I often run across references to "pom pom's", or Maxim Nordenfeldt's,or "Maxim 1pounders".
But I never saw a picture that gave decent perspective of the size of them.
Gives a WHOLE new meaning to,

Whatever happens, we have got
The Maxim gun, and they have not.”

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

Watch the video, or go to Forgotten weapons on youtube, facebook or full30


Sorry TAB, I don't have access to machines anymore. But how is it NFA exempt beyond the guts being missing in that particular one ?

Kind of ironic to consider it's original supporting rifle was the Martini Henry.

"I expect perdition, I always have. I keep this building at my back, and several guns handy, in case perdition arrives in a form that's susceptible to bullets. I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

Thanks Pegleg! That thing is impressive.

Tom, it must be because I'm viewing it on my phone, but I don't see a video or any other links. That's why I was curious.
