    Default 1917 US Navy Lewis Gun

    The US Navy Lewis Gun is much harder to come buy than the 303 Lewis. A BSA Drum can be had for $200 in the US. The 30-06 Drums are very difficult to find here. When you do than can run $x what a 303 drum costs. I was lucky to get 3 fully functional drums when I got this Lewis. The pouch on the floor holds two drums. This Lewis has never missed a beat and is a pleasure to shoot. I hope you enjoy this old warrior.

    Hi Robert,
    It is a lot of fun to shoot but I do not shoot it much anymore since I do not have a spare clock spring and if it were to break I would be out of luck since parts for the USN Lewis are impossible to find. I do however have a BSA Lewis in 303 which I shoot quite often as I have quite a few spare parts including another clock spring.
    Regards,
    Sam
