Blast from the past there! Trying to work out what the gun is - recognize it but can't remember name.

I've seen this photo before. I think it's from Pershing's 1916 Punitive Expedition into Mexico. What MGs did the Army use back then?
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
Thats cool, that must be the predecessor to todays armored personnel carriers.
Sure wasn't much armor on that puppy!Originally Posted by BCurry1

Its not a Maxim, but on my screen looks alot like a Potatoe Digger
The 1895/1914 Colt-Browning, this was in service until the Browning M1917.
1917 Marlin Gun, I doubt it was this one though, since it was primarily used on aircraft. (it worked well with interrupter gear, that kept pilots from shooting their propellers )
Hotchkiss 8mm M1914 (without stock)- French Army's standard MG
