    A small correction to Phillip Bull’s Ma Deuce article in the March issue: 1. John Browning designed the prototype and Fred Moore was in charge of producing it at Colts where he was in charge of the machine gun program not Ogden, Utah. 2. There were no Nazies in World War I Hitler was still a corporal. 3. The fifty was designed as an anti-tank gun for use against the early tanks where its ability to penetrate 1 1/8 inch of steel would have been quite effective. 4. The projectile was full metal jacket with a lead core not lead. Lead would violate the Geneva Convention of the time. Otherwise nice to see a quick change feature in the old war horse. However I never really had a problem head spacing or timeing a Browning. We had these near little gauges on a chain we kept around in our pocket. I like the magazine . H.T.O.
