Description:

A multi-purpose training device, this "gun" is effectively a camera mounted in a firearm-shaped housing, suitable for installation in a wing mount or waist-gun emplacement. When the trigger is pulled, the camera runs, with footage being taken of what the gun is aimed at; after landing, the film can be analyzed by the trainers for proper lead and burst timing. Measuring 29 inches overall with a matte black finish, nomenclature plates on top and on the right side behind the folding crank, and a "round counter" on top. Includes ring mount, six film canisters, cord, and an extra set of detachable sights. Mechanically untested.
