Lewis Gun, produced by Savage Arms Company, on Light Ground Mount support - .30-06
Soviet twin "Lewis Model 1924" on Tur-6 mounting on TB-1 bomber. "Model 1924" is a Soviet designation of infantry Lewis machine guns, converted for aircraft service.


While the confusion is understandable, given the flat pan magazine on top of the receiver, the weapon used on SAS/LRDG jeeps during WWII was the Vickers K machine gun. The weapon was chosen by David Stirling (SAS founder) due to its' availability and the high rate of fire. --Charon68 17:55, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Bren magazine compatibility?

I read somewhere the Bren magazine could be used on the Lewis, but I can't find any information on this. Is this true? It would make sense to design the Bren's magazine to be compatible with the Lewis, but it seems improbable for a conventional box magazine to work with the Lewis' feed mechanism. --Maxman (talk) 19:13, 12 November 2016 (EST)


As far as I can find, while the Mk I is the standard version, all the other Mk variants seem to apply only to the aerial Lewis guns; do the later ground variants have proper designations, like the two with the barrel shroud removed (one with carry handle, one with Thompson grip) on this page?
