The Browning Machine Gun, caliber .50, M2, aircraft basic, is a highly efficient automatic weapon built to precision standards. It is an air-cooled, alternate feed gun and, as such, may be fed from either the right or left side. It may be mounted on either a rigid or flexible mount. Manual cocking and loading of the gun is necessary before it is ready to function automatically. Then it may be fired by a mechanical or electrical accessory or by a manual trigger and trigger bar. While firing, all mechanical action is automatically performed by the gun itself and it will fire between 750 and 850 rounds per minute.
To care for the gun properly, so it will fire and keep on firing when needed, it is essential that its mechanical action be thoroughly understood and this manual is published for that purpose.
