Description
Deactivated curio WWI Vickers Model 1918 "Balloon Buster" machine gun. First modified by the French to accept the 11-mm Desvignes cartridge for increased incendiary effect on observation balloons and aircraft fuel tanks. 1,700, and additionally 1,875 of the 11mm Vickers were ordered from Colt's Patent Fire Arms Co in 1918. Rate of fire was approximately 600 rounds per minute, with an effective incendiary range up to 1,850 yards. By 1931, the US Vickers aircraft guns and their 11mm ammunition were declared obsolete. Most of the remaining guns were destroyed in the scrap metal drives during WWII, leaving possibly just a few hundred remaining examples today. This is an excellent example and display piece of the historic Vickers Machine gun, with some parts still moving, and some the propeller synchronization hardware still visible. Excellent condition. Caliber: 11mm
