    Default Bsa an-m2 mkii

    Hi,
    I want to show you my last baby
    It was bought, but never used, by the Italian Air Force after the war
    Just some questions:
    I saw some AN/M2 has the .303 marking before the MKII marking, mine hasn't..why?
    It may be possible she is in another caliber (7.62 NATO) but, in this case, shouldn't be the .303 marking removed...or is she born in this another caliber? but I know there wasn't a post-war production..
    What does V.A.C. with the British arrow means?
    Is it possible to know the year of production with the matricolar number?
    Was is the differences between the ones mounted on the figthers and the ones on the bombers?
    A lot of questions...sorry
    Thanks in advantage

    Davide

    Hi Davide
    i think bomber guns had flash hiders on the barels and wing mounted guns in fighters just had a barrel jackets. the guns themselves were the same i think.
