WW2 1943 - 1944 Australian WD Lithgow Vickers .303 Heavy Machine Gun With 1943 Dated Mount By RT (Randwick Tramways) & MK IV Tripod**UK 1999 DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED**Sn 20067:31 - 20067:31

This is an excellent clean WW2 dated smooth jacketed .303 Vickers Heavy Machine gun with mount & tripod. The machine gun is marked with serial number 'B6799' which identifies it as being a Lithgow Vickers made between 1944 & 1945 (see page 266 of ‘The Grand Old Lady Of No Man’s Land’ by Goldsmith. The author cites the last serial number as B2344 although total production as 12,344, which may be because a number of guns were reconfigured and assigned ‘B’ prefix serial numbers). The gun has WD arrow and Lithgow ‘MA’ marks. It is fitted with flip up long range sight and has excellent undamaged wood firing handles. The machine gun retains its original finish. Deactivated to UK specification in 1999 the gun cocks and dry fires crisply, the breech cover opens. The feed block is numbered A402 and was MA with WD arrow marks. The detachable gun mount is stamped ‘RT’ (Randwick Tramways) and is dated 1943. The tripod is in excellent original condition with original green paint and is marked ‘Mount Tripod MG MK IV’. It has the correct graduated dial and inspection marks (illustrated). The price includes deactivation certificate. Due to the size and weight of this piece delivery will be by arrangement and at cost. Sn 20067:31
