Thort you might care to see this - 8 minutes of live-firing Vickers Machine Guns. Careful of the audio level if you're wearing headphones!!

3 July 2022, 4pm, saw the Vickers Machine Gun Collection & Research Association commemorate the centenary of the disbandment of the Machine Gun Corps. Descending on NRA Bisley, Surrey, were 16 guns, 16,000 rounds of ammunition and 54 trained personnel. 45 minutes later, 0 rounds left. For more information on the Vickers Machine Gun, please visit: http://www.vickersmg.org.uk/


In case you are wondering why there are ladies there, they were mostly built by ladies in the various arsenals and tested on the range by them, so why not?

Just to explain that it is the actual association that owns the guns, covered by a Section 5 [Prohibited Firearms] Certificate. Members of the association are allowed to handle and shoot them covered by the blanket permission.

Non-members are NOT permitted to shoot one.

Not even holders of current Firearms certificates, like moi. My FAC is just for Section 1 firearms.
