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 the "round counter" that is normally found on top is absent. Includes ring mount, clamp mount, cables, eight film canisters, cord, two extra triggers, and a wooden crate that contains everything that is marked with G.I. style shipping information as well as capture paper. The capture paper and crate are marked as captured by corporal Vincent J. Raymond. Very fine with minimal wear overall. Mechanically untested.
