THE LEWIS GUN

Today they are one of the most popular weapons sought by military arms collectors and aficionados. Those in good firing condition often command prices of more than $20,000. Even one that has been demilitarized (non-working) will fetch $3,000 to $5,000, or better. Yet, few of today’s military buffs are aware of the dramatic role it played in two major world conflicts. The object in question is the forgotten gun of WW II - the famed Lewis Automatic machine gun that shot down more planes in WW I than all of the Vickers and Spandau guns combined. They also became standard issue infantry weapons in the Belgian and British armies which purchased more than 135,000 of them
from 1914 to 1918.
